The LA Lakers announced that LeBron James will return to practice next week, as he is still recovering from his injury.

The “King” will not travel with the Lakers on their road trip for the games against the Oklahoma City Thunder (Thursday) and the Houston Rockets (Saturday).

James has been sidelined with a groin strain since December 25 and the team is struggling without him, having won only four of their last 11 games (4-7).
