Lakers' James taking time to heal groin injury

Lakers' James taking time to heal groin injury

The Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Sacramento Kings on Thursday at the buzzer, and small forward Kyle Kuzma is pinning the loss on his shoulders.

Rondo is averaging 8.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 6.7 assists in 14 games this season.

After Justin Jackson made three free throws to tie the score at 112, Kyle Kuzma made a three-pointer with 41 seconds remaining. "We've got to do a better job closing out games and just being composed".

The initial feeling in the Lakers locker room was positive and optimistic after James suffered the injury during the third quarter of a 127-101 win over Golden State on Tuesday.

The Lakers are already without LeBron James, who injured his groin against the Warriors. Brandon Ingram scores 22 and Lonzo Ball almost records a triple-double with 20 points, 9 rebounds and 12 assists. He's also contributed 3.3 rebounds and a steal per game.

"Those type of things are what cost us the game, not having him at the end or that shot that Bogdanovic hit", Walton said.

The three-time National Basketball Association champion suffered the injury in the third quarter, and scans later revealed the injury was much better than first feared.

The good news is that the Lakers could get JaVale McGee back soon, as he's battling a respiratory infection, but Ivica Zubac has played well as of late. Other than the Knicks being a "gimme game", the Lakers will have to grind out 48 quality minutes to be on the winning side of their next few contests. Rondo, who missed 17 games with a fractured third metacarpal in his right hand before returning December 21, had 15 points, five rebounds and 10 assists to pick up the slack Tuesday after LeBron James exited with a groin injury.
