Lakers' Anthony Davis: Probable again Sunday
Davis (foot) is probable for Sunday's game against the Bulls, Harrison Faigen of SBNation.com reports.
The Lakers routinely list Davis as probable, so this is nothing to worry about. This month, he's averaging 27.2 points, 12.2 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.6 blocks in 35.4 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Questionable to play Sunday
Russell is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bulls, Harrison Faigen of SBNation.com reports.
Russell missed Friday's game against the Thunder, but head coach Darvin Ham has stated the injury isn't serious, so the questionable designation shouldn't be surprising. Dennis Schroder and Austin Reaves would be in line for bigger roles if Russell can't face Chicago.... See More ... See Less
Lakers' LeBron James: Upgraded to doubtful Sunday
James (foot) has been upgraded to doubtful for Sunday's matchup against the Bulls, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Recent reports have indicated James will likely be back before the end of the regular season, and the team officially listing him as doubtful rather than out is a step in that direction. Optimistically, he could be back as soon as Wednesday's game against the Bulls, assuming he sits out the first of the two-game set. More information should emerge in the coming days.... See More ...

Lakers' Scotty Pippen: Misses Tuesday's game
Pippen did not play in Tuesday's 132-115 loss to the Blue with an ankle injury.
Pippen was unable to suit up for Tuesday's game with an ankle injury. With one game left in the regular season and a playoff berth already clinched, Pippen could remain out for Saturday's game against the Ignite.... See More ... See Less
Lakers' Lonnie Walker: Re-emerges with 20 points
Walker registered 20 points (7-12 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds and three steals across 24 minutes during Friday's 116-111 victory over the Thunder.
Prior to Friday, Walker had been out of the rotation with three straight DNPs, but he was called upon against OKC in a critical contest for the Lakers' playoff aspirations. Walker responded with his best game of the month, finishing third on the team in scoring and leading Los Angeles with four makes from three-point range. Given recent trends, it's hard to know if this contest was an aberration, but Walker at least proved that he can still be an offensive factor if given the opportunity.... See More ... See Less
Lakers' Dennis Schroder: Makes key plays in starting role
Schroder chipped in 21 points (8-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, six assists, one block and two steals across 37 minutes during Friday's 116-111 win over the Thunder.
Schroder moved into the starting lineup Friday with D'Angelo Russell out due to a hip injury, and the former came up big in a game with significant implications on the Western Conference playoff picture. Schroder finished with his highest point total in two weeks, and he did much of that damage late in the contest, scoring 13 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter. The veteran point guard is a major part of the Lakers' rotation, even as a reserve, but he could see his fantasy value increase further if Russell needs to miss additional time.... See More ...

Lakers' Anthony Davis: Highly efficient in win
Davis contributed 37 points (15-21 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-11 FT), 15 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 36 minutes during Friday's 116-111 win over Oklahoma City.
This was a huge game for the Lakers, who pulled into a tie with Minnesota for seventh place in the Western Conference with the victory. Davis seemed to sense the urgency, as he dominated in the paint and registered his highest point total in nearly three weeks. The Brow added 15 boards, marking the third time in his past six games that he has hit that mark. Aside from not blocking any shots in either of his past two contests, Davis is coming up big for fantasy managers during this crucial part of the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Lakers' Anthony Davis: Gets green light
Davis (foot) is good to go for Friday's game against the Thunder, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.
No surprise here, as Davis has routinely been given probable designations recently and has usually played through them. Barring any setbacks, the big man should presumably see his usual role as the centerpiece of the Lakers' offensive game plan.... See More ... See Less
Lakers' Dennis Schroder: Starting Friday
Schroder will start at point guard in Friday's game against the Thunder, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.
Schroder is starting in place of D'Angelo Russell (hip). He has averaged 13.1 points, 2.8 rebounds and 5.0 assists across 32.1 minutes in 47 games as a starter this season. In comparison, he averages 11.2 points, 1.6 rebounds and 3.0 assists across 24.3 minutes coming off the bench.... See More ... See Less
Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Sitting out Friday
Russell (hip) won't play Friday against the Thunder, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.
Lakers head coach Darvin Ham said that the injury isn't serious and that Russell will be considered day-to-day going forward. Russell's next chance to play will come Sunday against the Bulls. With Russell sidelined Friday, Dennis Schroder and Austin Reaves will likely see heightened minutes and usage out of the backcourt.... See More ... See Less
Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Questionable with hip soreness
Russell is considered questionable for Friday's game versus the Thunder due to right hip soreness, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.
Russell wasn't listed on the initial injury report for Friday's game, but it appears he's picked up a sore hip over the last 24 hours, leaving his status in question. The team should supply an official designation for him prior to the 10:30 p.m. ET opening tip, with Dennis Schroder presumably replacing Russell in the starting five if he can't go.... See More ...

Lakers' Max Christie: Sent back to G League
The Lakers assigned Christie to the G League's South Bay Lakers on Thursday, Harrison Faigen of SBNation.com reports.
Christie hasn't seen much action with Los Angeles since returning to the squad. The guard played in two games with the Lakers in March, averaging a point in four minutes.... See More ... See Less
Lakers' Anthony Davis: Tabbed as probable Friday
Davis has claimed a probable designation on the Lakers' injury report for Friday's game versus the Thunder, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.
Davis is consistently given the probable tag ahead of games and has almost always played, so there is little to be concerned about at this point. The big man should continue to be the centerpiece of the Lakers' offensive game plan, with LeBron James (foot) sidelined for an undetermined amount of time.... See More ... See Less
Lakers' LeBron James: Returns to basketball activies
James (foot) has resumed on-court activity and a "gradual movement program" but the Lakers announced Thursday that he remains without an official timetable for a return to game action, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
James hasn't played since Feb. 26 due to a right foot injury. However, the superstar forward still plans to return before the regular season ends. The Lakers currently sit in 10th place in the Western Conference and will likely continue to rely on Anthony Davis to shoulder the offensive load until James is available.... See More ... See Less
Lakers' Rui Hachimura: Minimal production Wednesday
Hachimura accumulated zero points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and two rebounds across 13 minutes during Wednesday's 122-111 win over Phoenix.
Hachimura came off the bench for a third consecutive matchup Wednesday, and he was held scoreless for just the second time this season during the victory. The 25-year-old has operated as a reserve in 14 of his last 15 appearances and has averaged 8.4 points and 3.2 rebounds in 20.1 minutes per game during that time.... See More ... See Less
