For the second straight season, the Christmas Day game has resulted in an injury for Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James. The 34-year-old James re-aggravated his groin injury during Wednesday’s contest against the Los Angeles Clippers and could miss time recovering from the issue, according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin.
James re-injured himself after colliding with Patrick Beverley in the first quarter of the Clippers’ 111-106 win. Beverley kneed James in the groin during the collision, and that caused the injury to flare up.
The issue may have caused James to have a poor shooting night.
