James said he plans to get "around the clock" treatment in order to play in Tuesday's game at San Antonio.

The collision came on the same leg that suffered a high ankle sprain that caused him to miss 26 games at the end of last season.

"The first thing I was thinking to myself was, 'Not again,'" James said.

James collided with Memphis forward Desmond Bane in the second quarter and remained on the floor for several minutes. He was able to play the rest of the game, logging 40 minutes.

"Because obviously it was almost similar but not the same kind of play," James said. "Guy falls into my leg and there's nothing you can do about it and I couldn't get my leg out of there in time."

James finished with 19 points, six rebounds and six assists in leading the Lakers to their first win of the season.

The Lakers and Spurs are both 1-2 heading into their contest.

"Hopefully I'm ready to go," James said.
