James was making a drama at the lane when he appeared to slide while interlinking his leg along with passing the ball. Replays showed him grimacing poke and hit his groin area.
He made his way into the side line and tried to stretch it out but finally left the ground to the locker room, limping because he strode into the tunnel.
The Lakers held a comfortable lead on the Warriors when James left taking a 65-50 lead into halftime.
James led the Lakers with five assists with 13 rebounds and 17 points.
