LeBron James suffered a groin injury against the Kings that will keep him out against the Blazers.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- An ailing LeBron James is sitting out against the Portland Trail Blazers, the first game the Miami Heat star has missed this season.

James injured his right groin in the second quarter of Friday night's 108-103 overtime loss at Sacramento that snapped Miami's six-game winning streak. He stayed in the game and finished with 33 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.

James, selected The Associated Press 2013 Male Athlete of the Year this past week, also tweaked his left ankle in the loss.

The four-time NBA MVP warmed up before Saturday night's game against the Trail Blazers, but the two-time defending champions later announced he was inactive.
