The LA Lakers will look to snap a four-game losing streak when they face the Heat on Wednesday night.
The most recent Anthony Davis and LeBron James injury reports
The Lakers have had a rough week, losing five of their last seven games. They will try to snap their losing streak by defeating the Heat, which would be their third win in their last eight games.
Anthony Davis is out indefinitely due to a stress fracture in his right foot.
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 looks like he’ll be out for a while again.
While Davis is out, Thomas Bryant, who has been a solid starter recently, should keep his spot.
LeBron James (ankle) had 28 points (12-24 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, one block, and one steal in 31 minutes against the Magic on Tuesday. James struggled from three-point range in Tuesday’s win, but he still led the Lakers in scoring and came close to recording his eighth straight 30-point game. In 14 games this season, James has at least 25 points, five rebounds, and five assists.
Also, his ankle remains a concern, and he is questionable for the second half of the back-to-back on Wednesday.
The Heat defeated the Timberwolves in their most recent game, snapping a two-game losing streak. They’ll try to keep their momentum going with a win over the Lakers, their second in a row and sixth in their last eight games.
Udonis Haslem, Dewayne Dedmon, Caleb Martin, Gabe Vincent, Bam Adebayo, and Jimmy Butler are all out for the Heat in this game due to injuries.
