LeBron James out vs. Kings; games streak ends at 156

The 33-year-old underwent an MRI scan which confirmed he avoided any major complications but a timeline for his return appears uncertain. Their next four games - versus Sacramento twice, the Clippers and Oklahoma City - are against teams also in the conference playoff picture.

The Lakers reportedly expect James to miss at least a few games, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

James said he suffered the injury when he "overextended" his groin as his right leg slipped while Draymond Green poked the ball away from him. ESPN indicated the Lakers are understood to be willing to give James all the time he needs to ensure he comes back fully fit, rather than running the risk of rushing him back too soon.

LeBron James was held out of the Lakers' 117-116 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Thursday night because of a groin injury, ending his consecutive games played streak at 156.

Sears may be down to its last 24 hours
The company has been losing money and closing stores for years, and many employees blame its former CEO turned chairman, Lampert. However, as of Thursday afternoon, Lampert had not submitted his bid for failure to raise the cash, insiders say.

Rondo was terrific for the Lakers against Golden State - especially after James departed in the third quarter - and finished with 15 points, 10 assists and 5 rebounds. Bogdan Bogdanovic, who had 11 points through three quarters, sparked the comeback with 12 points in the fourth, including the winning 3-pointer at the buzzer.

The Lakers need to adjust their game plan as superstar LeBron James sits out due to a strained groin.

"I take a lot of pride in [staying healthy], so that is why it pissed me off not being able to go back into the game", James said. "All that said, we made enough plays to win".

In addition to playing in Sacramento on Thursday, the Lakers host the Kings on Sunday night.
