Updates on the injuries of Lakers’ LeBron James and Anthony Davis ahead of their game against…

James is listed as questionable (ankle) while Davis is probable (Achilles) for the contest, according to the NBA injury report.

The mixed bag of updates appears to lean positive since the all-time scoring leader carried the same designation against the Washington Wizards on the second day of a back-to-back on Thursday and still played 39 minutes.

Being forced to go into overtime versus one of the worst teams in the league before facing the reigning champions is sub-optimal, particularly for a 39-year-old, but one would assume James fights through the discomfort for this marquee matchup. Surprising scratches cannot be ruled out, though, considering he missed the first contest after the All-Star Game.

. Anthony Davis joins him on the injury report. Their status is obviously crucial, with LA focused on starting this demanding homestand (six-straight games against teams with winning records) with a victory over Nikola Jokic and Denver.
