After suffering a groin injury in the Miami Heat’s loss to the Sacramento Kings Friday, LeBron James will miss his first game of the season against the Portland Trail Blazers Saturday night.

The Blazers are sporting the NBA’s top record. Following a disappointing (to put it lightly) loss to the Kings, a win against the league’s most winning team would serve as a momentum changer and a spark for fans.
That spark looks dimmer with the loss of James for a game.

James is averaging 25.4 points, 6.9 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game this season.

The Heat and Blazers play at 10 p.m. ET at the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon.
