LeBron James remains sidelined, recovering from his strained groin injury suffered on Christmas Day against the Golden State Warriors.

The Los Angeles Lakers' star forward appears to be close to making his return, as he went through a full contact practice, but he's not back yet.

James is on the bench for tonight's Lakers-Suns game.

At halftime, LeBron appeared to do some tweeting.

The Lakers' star had a message for his close friend, Carmelo Anthony, who returned to Madison Square Garden this evening.

Anthony, who was traded by the Rockets to the Bulls, is expected to become a free agent and he's been linked to the Lakers.

James has previously said that he thought it would be great to have Anthony join the young Lakers' team.

"I think it would it be great to have Carmelo Anthony be on the Lakers. I believe Melo can still play the game. I believe I can help Melo. I know Melo better than Melo knows himself at times, and vice versa. So if the opportunity presents itself I would welcome it. That's what it all boils down to," he told ESPN.

Anthony has been linked to a couple of other teams as well, including the Pacers.

Stay tuned.
