The Los Angeles Lakers have been without their biggest star for over two weeks, but there's hope he'll be returning sooner than later. 

Luke Walton, who announced last week that LeBron James will miss at least one week action, confirmed the Lakers star will miss Friday's game against the Utah Jazz before being re-evaluated on Friday in L.A. for his groin injury.

James originally suffered the injury on Christmas Day against the Golden State Warriors. The Lakers star forward attempted to drive to the basket before being cut off by Draymond Green. James tried to stop, but his leg gave out and he appeared to be in a considerable amount of pain.
