The Los Angeles Lakers will continue to be without LeBron James until at least January 16th. He's already missed eight games since injuring the groin.
In a statement released on LeBron's injury, it was revealed that he is progressing and has been cleared to increase on-court activities.
The Lakers are 3-5 without James in the lineup due to the groin injury. They're currently holding onto 8th place in the Western Conference.
Los Angeles is going to need a fully healthy LeBron to make a strong push to the playoffs. They have time right now to let him drink all the wine he wants and wait for him to get back to full strength.
