LeBron James 'progressing' from groin injury, still not close to returning

Los Angeles CA USA Los Angeles Lakers forward Le Bron James celebrates with teammates during

On top of being a superb talent, James has been remarkably durable during his career, so there's not much of a template for how he recovers from injuries. Instead, it seems James' ever-changing timeline could be drastically worse than originally thought.

This update says that he has been "cleared to increase on-court functional basketball movements", which is an unnecessary way of suggesting that James has in fact stepped foot on a basketball court since the injury. The latest update from the team holds that while his groin ailment is coming along, fans won't hear anything more until January 16. Robinson was told by a Lakers source that James could be out "until the end of February, or even longer".

The Rams went into half-time 20-7 up, while the defence showed its' stability in the second half to stop the Cowboys from getting back into the game.

That means he'll miss at least three more games, including Sunday's game in L.A. against the Cavaliers.

The Los Angeles Lakers have been without their biggest star for over two weeks, but there's hope his return is coming soon.

With James being out of the lineup for another game, the Lakers will be forced to continue to adapt and adjust without their franchise player.

James, 34, has not played since sustaining the injury during a win at Golden State on Christmas Day.

Two days later, Kyle Kuzma channeled his inner-LeBron by pouring in 41 points and leading the Lakers to a 113-100 win over the Detroit Pistons. If James wants to meet him there, the Lakers will most likely have to convince a star that they will be able to overcome the many challenges of playing with the three-time National Basketball Association champ.

The Cavaliers ended their 12-game losing streak to make it 9-35 for the season, and they were not the first team to end their losing run against the Lakers. It's also the start of a tough stretch for the Lakers in which they have road games against the Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets, followed by a home date with the Warriors.
