LeBron to miss at least one more week.
The Los Angeles Lakers will be without LeBron James for the fifth straight game tonight when they host the New York Knicks at Staples Center, and he won't be travelling on the team's upcoming two-game road trip either.
The Lakers provided an update on LeBron's groin strain today, revealing that the four-time NBA MVP continues to receive daily treatment and will be reevaluated in a week.
LeBron, who suffered an injury during the team's victory against the Golden State Warriors on Christmas Day, has already missed four games. The Lakers are 1-3 without him in the lineup.
In addition to tonight's game against New York, the 34-year old forward will miss Sunday's game in Minnesota and Monday's game at Dallas. The Lakers will return to L.A. for a home game against the Detroit Pistons next Wednesday, though it's unlikely he'll be ready to suit up given the one-week time frame.
Entering tonight's contest, the Lakers are sitting in eighth place in the Western Conference with a 21-17 record. According to ESPN, forward Kyle Kuzma is listed as questionable after he suffered a lower-back contusion Wednesday against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
