James suffered a tear in his left groin during the 2018-19 season — his first in L.A. — that caused him to miss 17 straight games from late December to late January.
The injury marred a strong performance from the 20-year veteran. James had 30 points on 12-for-22 shooting, 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals in 32 minutes against the Clippers.
