LeBron James back to shooting as groin strain recovery continues

ESPN

Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James, still recovering from a significant groin strain that has kept him sidelined for three games, participated little in practice Tuesday but did get some shots up in front of coach Luke Walton for the first time since his injury.

James is still listed as day-to-day, and it remains unclear how long he will be sidelined. Sources previously told ESPN's Brian Windhorst and Adrian Wojnarowski that the team was preparing for James to miss several games after he suffered the injury on Christmas against the Golden State Warriors.

Walton said Tuesday marked "the first time I've seen [James] shooting," but, Walton added, "He's working on his body, his game, himself all the time. But that's the first time I've seen him shoot [since the injury]."

The Lakers beat the Sacramento Kings on Sunday, snapping a two-game skid with James sidelined. James' teams had lost 13 straight games when he wasn't in the lineup, dating to March 16, 2016, when the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Dallas Mavericks.
