Warriors – Lakers Injury Update: Anthony Davis, LeBron James and Gary Payton II IN or OUT for the match tonight?

Warriors - Lakers Injury Update: Anthony Davis, LeBron James and Gary Payton II IN or OUT for the match tonight?

This Saturday, the Los Angeles Lakers take on the Golden State Warriors in a Pacific Division matchup. Each team will face the other for the second time this year.

What team between the Golden State Warriors and the LA Lakers do you think will come out on top?

Wednesday’s loss to the Blazers, by a score of 125-122, was the latest low point for the Warriors. Losses have resumed for the Dubs after a brief winning streak that included victories over the Dallas Mavericks and Oklahoma City Thunder.

Is Curry scheduled to play tonight?

The Sacramento Bee’s Jason Anderson reported that Stephen Curry (lower leg) will sit out until after the All-Star break.

It was feared that Curry would be out for a long time after he was diagnosed with a contusion to his lower left leg and partial tears to his superior tibiofibular ligaments and interosseous membrane earlier this week.

Although the team initially declined to set a timetable for their star point guard, they have since acknowledged that Curry will rest until after the All-Star break.

Since this is the second game of a back-to-back set, it would be surprising if the coaching staff didn’t give him an extra night if he was ready to return, which would put him back in the lineup on February 24 against the Rockets, despite the fact that the new schedule has him returning to action on February 23 against the Lakers.

The Warriors have counted on the playmaking of Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole to help make up for the loss of Stephen Curry.

Can we assume that Gary Payton II is prepared to play today?

The Warriors, the Blazers, the Pistons, and the Hawks were all supposed to trade for Gary Payton II, but the deal may not go through after Payton II failed a physical, according to a report by Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Payton has been diagnosed with an abdominal muscle injury, which could keep him out of action for up to three months, according to the Warriors. The Warriors will learn Saturday if the trade is finalized.

What’s the latest on the injury to the Golden State Warriors?

The Golden State Warriors will get to welcome back an old friend and take a look at the newly revamped Los Angeles Lakers roster this Saturday night when they host their Pacific Division rivals.

This is the first meeting between the teams since LeBron James passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, but it is the second meeting this season between teams separated by three wins in the race for the Western Conference’s eighth and final playoff spot.

Against Oklahoma City on Tuesday night, King James scored 38 points, an NBA record. His score of 38,393 puts him three points ahead of Abdul-Jabbar.

Reports on Anthony Davis and LeBron James’s recoveries

According to Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register, Anthony Davis (foot) is considered “probable” for Saturday’s game against the Warriors.

Despite continuing foot pain, Davis is expected to play in his sixth straight game. In the last five games, he has played 35.2 minutes per game and averaged 25.6 points, 12.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1.0 blocks.

Los Angeles’s flurry of trades before the deadline shouldn’t change Davis’s role; he should still be the team’s primary force in the paint and compete with LeBron James for nightly high-scoring honors.

The Los Angeles Lakers are currently in the midst of a three-game losing streak after Thursday night’s 115-106 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks at home.

Their record is now 25-31 (25-29-2 against the spread). In spite of facing the hottest team in the league, the Lakers fought valiantly.

James is expected to play against the Warriors on Saturday despite sitting out Thursday’s 115-106 home loss to the Milwaukee Bucks due to an ankle injury.

The Lakers are trying to get their new players into the lineup as soon as possible in order to make a playoff push over the final 26 games of the regular season.

As reported by Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times, James‘s participation in tonight’s game is in question due to an ankle injury.

His participation on Saturday is also in doubt, but an update should be provided by the team before tipoff at 8:30 PM ET.
