Lakers Issue New Injury Update For LeBron James

Darrell

The Lakers gave the latest update on James' groin injury Wednesday.

The teams entered the night as two of the worst 3-point shooting teams in the National Basketball Association - the Lakers No. 28 in the league and the Thunder dead last at No. 30. Kyle Kuzma scored a game-high 32 points for the Lakers, while pulling down eight rebounds and dishing out four assists. Ferguson was arguably the Thunder's best player on the night, hitting five of the Thunder's team-record 22 3-pointers.

It was the fifth loss for the Thunder in their past six games and drops them back to a 26-18 record, keeping them third in the congested western conference.

In his first season in purple and gold, LeBron is averaging 27.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.1 assists per game.

But Westbrook pulled up as soon as Ball reached in and got the call in the act of shooting, leading to three free throws. He pointed out that the referee who called the foul thought that Westbrook was already in shooting motion when Ball committed an illegal contact. Assuming that's true, he will have missed more games (14) than in any previous season.

Ball took responsibility for the situation.

But the senior Trump administration official suggested it would at least be mentioned. Insisting that US allies bear a "fair" share of defense spending.

On the flip side, the Chino Hills product continues to struggle with his shooting, hitting 40.3 percent overall, 33.3 percent from three and 41.8 percent at the free throw line. Russell Westbrook had 26 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds for the Thunder, but he shot just 7 of 30.

He also was injured in the Christmas game and three days later had surgery to fix a ligament in his right ring finger.

Westbrook made all three shots, sending the game to overtime.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball (2) drives to the basket against Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams (12) during the first half at Chesapeake Energy Arena. "Even if the front office tandem of Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka held Walton responsible for the Lakers' swoon and wanted to make an in-season change, Buss nearly certainly would prevent such rashness".

Jimmy Butler had an extremely efficient night in the Philadelphia 76ers' 120-96 win over the Indiana Pacers.
