Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports that LeBron James is doubtful to play against the Kings on Wednesday due to soreness in his left ankle. Lakers superstar’ status for Wednesday’s game is questionable because he has played through ankle soreness for the majority of the past two months.
Over his last four games, the 38-year-old has played an average of 39 minutes per game while averaging 36.0 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 8.8 assists.
Earlier this week, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that Anthony Davis (foot) would resume running on the court and aim to return to game action sometime in early February.
Davis has missed the last 16 games due to a bone spur and stress reaction in his right foot, and he will continue to do so on Monday night against the Rockets. Charania says the big man will start taking contact in practice in the “relative near future” if Davis can start running again this week and gradually increase the intensity of those sessions. Davis is expected to miss the rest of January due to injury.
Before the All-Star break and the February 9 trade deadline, the Lakers are hoping to get Anthony Davis back for a few games. Until Anthony Davis is healthy again, Thomas Bryant will likely continue to start at center for the Lakers.
