Team news and Injuries
Anthony Davis (MCL sprain) and Kendrick Nunn (bone bruise) will both be out tomorrow, as predicted. Nunn, who has already missed half of the season, did some individual training on Tuesday, but there is no schedule for his comeback, according to Vogel.
The rectus abdominis strain of LeBron James is categorized as likely. The South Bay Lakers will have Jay Huff and Mason Jones (two-way contracts). Assistant coaches Dave Fizdale and Mike Penberthy have cleared health and safety protocols, which is fantastic news for the Lakers. Their offensive changes and contributions have been severely missed in recent games.
Kings vs Lakers Preview
The Memphis Grizzlies’ Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies put on a show at Crypto.com Arena to humiliate the Los Angeles Lakers. The one bright point in the Lakers’ awful performance was LeBron James. With a game-high 35 points, the four-time MV shined once more. The remainder of the starting lineup combined for 22 points, which was simply not good enough. Russell Westbrook played another game with zero turnovers, but he was barely noticeable.
With a defensive rating of 113.3, the Sacramento Kings are ranked 26th in the NBA. In the previous five games, that number has risen to an appalling 116.6, the worst in the league. One of the primary reasons they’ve been losing is because of their defensive issues.
