The Los Angeles Lakers have had injury struggles all season, and that hasn't stopped in the playoffs. During Game 4 against the Phoenix Suns, Anthony Davis ended up sustaining an injury, which in turn sidelined him for the rest of the game. If the injury holds him out of Game 5, then it may be up to LeBron James to carry the load for the Lakers.

LeBron James has recently commented on the prospect of carrying the team. James mentions that he's ready for the challenge. We've seen LeBron James carry teams singlehandedly before, and hopefully, he can do the same for the Lakers now.

We've seen LeBron James step up in big games before, and we can be certain that he will be aggressive on the offensive end if Anthony Davis is out. While LeBron James will certainly do his part, the Los Angeles Lakers will need more from the rest of the roster. Andre Drummond and Dennis Schroder may have to play bigger roles in the offense. The Phoenix Suns are no joke, and the three-headed monster of Chris Paul, Devin Booker, and Deandre Ayton isn't an easy matchup. However, when you have Lebron James on the roster, there is potential for the spectacular.
