LeBron James will miss at least the next two games for the Lakers as he continues to rehabilitate a strained left groin, his agent, Rich Paul of Klutch Sports, told ESPN on Tuesday.

James has missed the past 11 games since suffering the injury on Christmas Day at the Golden State Warriors, and the Lakers have gone 4-7 in his absence, including Tuesday’s 107-100 win against the hapless Chicago Bulls at Staples Center.

The groin injury will be re-evaluated in Los Angeles on Wednesday – the three-week mark since the injury occurred – and James will not accompany the team on its two-game trip to Oklahoma City and Houston, Paul told ESPN.

The news comes at a treacherous time in the Lakers’ schedule, as they will play the Thunder – the No. 3 team in the Western Conference – followed by the No. 4 Rockets and finally the No. 1 Warriors in the span of five days.

James has not been ruled out of the matchup with Golden State on Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday night at Staples Center. James has been progressing in his rehab, participating in half-court shooting and passing drills at the Lakers’ practice facility this week.

Lakers coach Luke Walton said he was “encouraged” by what he has seen from James on the court but was quick to add that James “didn’t do the up-and-down stuff” with the rest of the team.

The Lakers saw an 18-point lead in the fourth quarter cut to five before holding on to beat the Bulls on Tuesday. (ESPN)
