Guard Rajon Rondo, whose 14-game absence coincided with James' injury spell, benefited from having the team's "quarterback" back as he added 14 points and 13 rebounds.

"What I know of him, he's probably pretty locked in right now, ready to compete", Walton said before Thursday's game.

"I worked my ass off to get back to this point", LeBron continued.

Late in Thursday night's battle between the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers, center Boban Marjanovic took an elbow from Lance Stephenson on a drive to the basket that potentially changed the game.

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James will make his return Thursday night against the Los Angeles Clippers after missing almost five weeks with a left groin strain, league sources told Yahoo Sports.‬.

According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, James will make his much-anticipated return to the Lakers lineup tonight. I want to see how my body reacts tomorrow. James had 24 points, 14 rebounds and nine assists on his return from the longest absence of his career.

James played 40 minutes after not playing at all for 37 days in a 123-120 overtime win over the Clippers.

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. "I told our coaches then, he's in".

LeBron scored 53.3 FanDuel points in the win.

James had been sidelined with a strained left groin since December 25 and seen his team lose 11 of their 17 games in that five-week span.

Avery Bradley and Williams missed on the same possession, and Williams missed a technical free throw for the Clippers.

Their next four games after the Warriors clash will see the Lakers travel to Indiana, Boston, Philadelphia and Atlanta before the All-Star Game on Feb 17.
