LeBron James has been dealing with some issues as of late.

LeBron James has had an emotional week if you want to put it lightly. Just last Tuesday, he surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for first all-time on the NBA scoring list. Overall, this is one of the best records in the entire history of the league. It is unfathomable to think that James could have ever broken this record. Moreover, LeBron still has a few great years left in him, which means it is likely that he runs up his numbers. If you are a basketball fan, you can't help but be grateful for the greatness LeBron has provided over the years.

Since breaking the record, James has been out of the Lakers lineup with a bit of an injury. He has been dealing with soreness in his foot that has threatened to derail the Lakers' season. Although, James was able to return on Wednesday night against the New Orleans Pelicans. Throughout that game, the Lakers looked like a complete team as James scored 21 points in an 18-point victory. Subsequently, James gave reporters some updates on his injury and how he will be moving forward.

LeBron Reacts

“Just knowing there was no structural damage. No stress reaction, no stress fracture, no bone chips, breaks, anything like that. It was just something that happened, just wear down. … I was able to not stress it as much because I was not able to play the last three games," LeBron explained. “My ankle and my foot feels really good right now. So it’s a good start.” This should come as very good news to the Los Angeles Lakers. Without LeBron, they would ultimately have no chance of actually winning anything.

Heading into this last stretch of the season, the Lakers will likely need to win 67 percent of their games in order to make the play-in. Overall, this is a very difficult task when you consider how bad the team has been this year. However, with a new roster surrounding LeBron, everyone seems very motivated to make it happen. Let us know what you think of the Lakers' chances, in the comments below. Additionally, stay tuned to HNHH for more news from the sports world.
