On Tuesday evening, the Lakers will face the Magic in an inter-conference matchup. Last year, the Lakers defeated the Magic 2-0.
Injury status updates for LeBron James and Anthony Davis
The Los Angeles Lakers are attempting to end a four-game losing streak. They are struggling to keep the opposition at bay in the slide. On Friday, the Lakers were defeated by the Hornets by a score of 134-130.
Star Anthony Davis, Juan Toscano-Anderson, LeBron James, and Dennis Schroder are among the Lakers’ injured players in this game.
Anthony Davis has a stress fracture in his right foot and will be out indefinitely.
Davis hasn’t played more than 40 games in either of the last two seasons, and he hasn’t played more than 62 games in any of the previous five, so he appears to be in for another long absence. While Davis is out, Thomas Bryant, who has been playing well as the starting center recently, should keep his spot.
Meanwhile, LeBron James has played the last three games despite a sore left ankle, and he should be able to play again on Tuesday. He has averaged 34.3 points, 8.0 assists, and 4.7 rebounds in 34.0 minutes over his last three games.
The Orlando Magic are looking for their third straight victory. They’re playing with confidence and have been one of the NBA’s best teams this month, winning eight of their last nine games. The only loss during that time period came on the road against the Hawks.
Jonathan Isaac and Jalen Suggs are both out for Magic in this game due to injuries.
