LeBron's social media posts can be hard to decipher at times.

LeBron James has missed some action over the past couple of weeks. Of course, this is due to the fact that he has been dealing with an ankle injury. Overall, this is an injury that could have derailed the Lakers' season. However, in the aftermath of this injury, the Lakers have actually been quite good. As it stands, they are in the play-in, which is great news for their fans. Once the play-in comes around, it will be anyone's game, and the Lakers certainly have the pieces to shock a few people.

Regardless, everyone wants James to return before the playoffs. If this team has any chance of truly making a solid deep run, then they will need LeBron to be healthy. Unfortunately, James is now 38 years old which means he cannot heal as fast as he used to. Either way, there is a hope that he will at least return by the play-in. This is when James truly shines, and the Lakers feel like they can shock some of the teams at the top of the Western Conference standings.

LeBron Takes To The Gram

On Tuesday, LeBron decided to surprise some fans with a unique post on social media. In the Instagram image above, you can see LeBron in some sort of cryo-chamber with a mask on. This is an AI-generated image, and the caption is simply a king's crown emoji and an hourglass emoji. Overall, it is hard to say what LeBron is truly trying to convey here. However, using context clues, you might be able to guess that he is healing up and trying to get back on the court. Unfortunately, an exact timeline for this still eludes us.

LeBron recently broke the NBA scoring record, and fans want to see him run his numbers up. Although, for LeBron, the goal right now is to make an improbable playoff run. After missing the playoffs last year, he wants to prove to people that he can lead a championship contender. Let us know what you think about all of this, in the comments down below.
