Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James will sit out the game against the Golden State Warriors due to a sore groin.
A groin problem means James will not suit up to face the Warriors in the NBA on Thursday, the Lakers announced on Wednesday.
James posted a season-high 40 points in the Lakers' 118-109 win against the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday.
The 35-year-old, who endured an injury-ravaged debut season in Los Angeles, is averaging 25.5 points, 10.6 assists and 7.7 rebounds per game for the Western Conference leaders in 2019-20.
