LeBron James hasn't suited up since he left the game against the Warriors on Christmas Day with a groin injury. Since then, wins have been few and far between as the Lakers haven't been able to adapt to life without their biggest star.

Friday's game will mark the fifth that James has missed.

The Lakers are now 21-17 on the season and sit in eighth place in the Western Conference which would give them the final playoff spot if the season ended today.
