36-year-old LeBron James came up huge for the Lakers on Wednesday, dropping 22 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists per game in the 103-100 play-in victory.
Apparently, the performance wasn't enough to stem worry about James' condition, as one insider, for example, explained to fans why they should be worried about his current status.
"We need to be concerned about LeBron James," said Marc Spears. "He was supposed to be the PG. He was deferring to Schroeder all night. I'm hearing he's playing on one leg."
LeBron has missed a huge chunk of the season, largely due to a high ankle sprain that has been giving him trouble for months.
Judging by the report, LeBron hasn't yet fully recovered, and what we saw on Wednesday were signs that he's just not himself right now.
The good news for L.A. is that they still got the win and LeBron was still one of the best players on the floor.
The bad news is, a compromised James might not be enough to get them to the Finals this year, and especially not as the 7th seed.
Ultimately, it will be up to Anthony Davis and the supporting cast to carry the load and keep the team afloat as James continues his recovery.
No doubt, this will be a story to watch as the playoffs progress.
