Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is nearing return from an abdominal strain, perhaps as early as Friday against the Boston Celtics, ESPN reported.

James last played November 2 in a 119-117 win over the Houston Rockets. In 36 minutes, he scored 30 points on 13-for-21 shooting and added 10 assists.

The Lakers are 3-4 without James, who turns 37 next month. They begin a five-game road trip Wednesday against the Milwaukee Bucks.
