Lakers Trying To Weather Storm Without LeBron James

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers will be without LeBron James for a few more games as he recovers from a groin injury.

James ranks 5th in the National Basketball Association in scoring with 27.3 points a game and is also averaging 8.3 rebounds and 7.1 assists a game.

The team said James is receiving daily treatment for the injury, which occurred during a win over the Golden State Warriors. At some point, we need more passion.

However, they emerged from the locker room with newfound energy and flipped a 67-54 halftime deficit into an 86-80 lead they would not relinquish.

If James were cleared to return following the team's re-evaluation, his first game back could come against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

A challenge from their head coach gave Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball motivation. The Lakers, however, reportedly were preparing to be without him for "several games". We need more fight.

The Hampton was quick to point out via Twitter that Aaliyah was only a small part of the story she is telling with this series. Kelly's arrest on charges of child pornography is the focus of the second chapter of the three-part docuseries Surviving R.

Both Ingram and James play best with the ball in their hand, although there's obviously only one ball to go around between the two of them and whoever is playing point guard.

James is still expected to miss another week's worth of games.

Rookie Jalen Brunson notched his first career double-double and narrowly missed a triple-double as he had 13 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists off the bench in his first game in Philadelphia after helping Villanova win two NCAA Tournament titles in three seasons. "So, they know that we need them, and they'll get it going for us".

Los Angeles signed James to a four-year, $153.3 million contract this summer. Dallas then opened the third quarter with consecutive turnovers, and Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma, who returned to the lineup and scored 13 points, drained a pair of 3-pointers to start the run.

Karl-Anthony Towns had 28 points, 18 rebounds and four blocks to help the Timberwolves improve to 14-6 at home, including 8-2 against Western Conference foes.
