The Lakers reportedly expect James to miss at least a few games, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.
LeBron James hasn't missed many games due to injury over the course of his 16 years in the National Basketball Association, but his streak of 156 consecutive games played will come to an end Thursday night in Sacramento thanks to a "significant" left groin strain.
LeBron James was held out of the Lakers' 117-116 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Thursday night because of a groin injury, ending his consecutive games played streak at 156. The Kings visit Los Angeles for a rematch Sunday. Their next four games - versus Sacramento twice, the Clippers and Oklahoma City - are against teams also in the conference playoff picture.

The officials said that medical workers had carried out new medical exams of nearly all the children in the care of the U.S. But like others in the rural farming village of Yalambojoch, he decided that traveling with a child was the only way out.
Like James, Rondo suffered his injury during a 127-101 win at Golden State on Tuesday. His right leg swung underneath him as he lost his footing, putting pressure on his left leg and groin as he reached forward to try to maintain possession of the ball. Kuzma told reporters after the game the team shouldn't have been in that position in the first place. "We're going to see what the MRI says, see how I feel the rest of the day today".
"We are obviously not going to rush him back", said Walton, speaking during the Lakers' practice on Thursday morning. "We'll be careful and cautious when he starts playing again". James is averaging 27.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.1 assists this season.
Rondo had just returned December 21 after missing the previous 17 games following surgery to fix a fractured third metacarpal in his right shooting hand.
