LeBron James went to the locker room during the Los Angeles Lakers’ Christmas Day matchup against the Golden State Warriors.
While talking to the coaching staff, LeBron James can be seen appearing to say that he “felt a pop.”
LeBron James hasn’t missed a game since the 2016-17 season. The four-time league MVP has played in 156 consecutive games, regular season and playoffs.
James, 33, played in every game last season with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the first time in his legendary NBA career.
In his first season with the Lakers, LeBron James is averaging 27.6 points, 8.2 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game. The King is shooting 51.8 percent from the field, 36.0 percent from beyond the arc and 68.4 percent from the free-throw line.
James is built like Superman. He’s never suffered a serious injury during his 16-year NBA career. The Lakers are a lottery team without LeBron, so this injury is going to be one to monitor very closely.
The Warriors are probably thrilled to see James leave the floor. The Lakers were up by 14 points when LeBron left the floor. Golden State went on a huge run to cut the lead to two when James left. When you lose the best player in the world, those types of things are going to happen, especially when you’re playing the Warriors.
