During the Sunday night game against the New Orleans Pelicans, the Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James (39 points) landed on the Pelicans big man Jaxson Hayes’ foot early in the second quarter and continued to play in pain.

After the game, LeBron James talked on if his ankle injury may keep him out going forward: “I hope not, shit. Cause I hate missing games. That’s just not in my nature. I’ve already started the process of treatment … We’ll see how it feels on Tuesday.”
