Stephen Curry (left leg injury) returned to the practice court on Tuesday for light, non-contact work. Steph was set to be re-evaluated after the All-Star break, and while this is a step in the right direction, it's a very small one. It may be a few more weeks before Steph is back, which means Jordan Poole should continue to start at point guard with Ty Jerome backing him up.

LeBron James accumulated 21 points (7-of-14 FGs, 7-of-10 FTs), six rebounds, six assists, and one blocked shot in Wednesday's 120-102 win over the Pelicans. The Lakers wanted to hold James, who was back in action after a three-game absence with an ankle injury, to 30 minutes or less on Wednesday. Mission accomplished, as he logged 29 minutes in a game the Lakers blew open during the fourth quarter. The perimeter shot wasn't working as LeBron missed all five of his 3-point attempts, but he went 7-of-9 inside the arc. He was one of two Lakers to score 21 points, with D'Angelo Russell being the other. Russell also tallied two rebounds, seven assists, one steal, and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.
