    Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (23) high-fives Josh Hart (3) at the end of the first half of the team’s NBA basketball game against the Golden State Warriors today in Oakland, Calif.

OAKLAND, Calif. >> LeBron James left today’s game against Golden State midway through the third quarter with an apparent left groin injury.

The Lakers star grabbed at his left groin after slipping under the Warriors basket at the 7:51 mark of the third trying for a loose ball.

Members of the training staff came out and James tried to stretch it out, awkwardly walked toward the Lakers bench trying to loosen up before leaving on his own though gingerly out the tunnel for the locker room.

James, playing his second straight Christmas game against the Warriors at Oracle Arena after losing last year’s matchup with Cleveland, had 17 points, 13 rebounds and five assists before exiting.
