soft spot in laminent floor?


hello im going to put ceramic tile down in my kitchen. After i pull the laminent up how do i fix this soft spot. Will some type of mortar under the cement board be enough assuming its not due to water damage. Do i need to pull the whole peice of plywood up? if i do what do i do about the cabnit in front of it?
