The Los Angeles Lakers' star forward reported no problems after another full practice Wednesday, but the team wants to see how he feels 24 hours later before determining his status for Thursday's game at the Los Angeles Clippers.

The 15-time All-Star was averaging 27.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.1 assists this season before he went down with the injury.

"Worked my ass off to get back to this point", James said.

The Lakers won just 11 of 17 games since James strained his groin in a game against the Golden State Warriors.

The 16-time National Basketball Association champions went 6-11 during LeBron's absence, falling from fourth to ninth in the Western Conference rankings and remain one point behind the Clippers, who now hold the final playoff berth in the west.

LeBron will not have a minutes restriction, per coach Luke Walton, who added that the Lakers will keep a "close eye" on their superstar's conditioning considering he has been out for the last 17 games. "I wish I could click my shoes together right now and be home in my bed". But it was great to be back out there.

"What I know of him, he's probably pretty locked in right now, ready to compete", Walton said before Thursday's game. Maybe I'm not just a trusting soul. "That's the tell-tale sign for me is how my body feels after having to play 40 minutes".

"I wasn't positive every day through this whole process".

"I've never been injured before like that, the most I've ever sat out was two weeks when I broke my wrist in high school as a junior". He was originally listed as out but was upgraded to doubtful earlier in the day.
