Lakers News: LeBron James Nursing Sore Ankle Going Into All-Star Break

Heading into the All-Star break, the Los Angeles Lakers have to feel pretty good about where they are given the obstacles they faced when the 2020-21 season began.

The short layoff between their title run and the start of the season coupled with the roster turnover put them at a natural disadvantage compared to the rest of the league. Also, Anthony Davis suffered a calf injury that will likely sideline him until at least mid-March.

Despite those factors, LeBron James has powered Los Angeles to a respectable record and established himself as one of the frontrunners for MVP.
