Lakers head coach Darvin Ham announced that LeBron James and Anthony Davis are available for Monday’s game against the Knicks. Having the star duo of James and Davis on the court gives LA a great chance to get back on track after a loss.
D’Angelo Russell, Jarred Vanderbilt, and Cam Reddish are also available after missing Friday night’s game against the Spurs. Having three key role players back in the lineup will help the LakeShow’s offense and defense be more consistent.
Update:— Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter) December 19, 2023
Anthony Davis (left adductor/hip spasm), LeBron James (left calf contusion), D’Angelo Russell (non-COVID illness), Jarred Vanderbilt (low back spasm) and Christian Wood (non-COVID illness) have been upgraded to AVAILABLE for tonight’s game vs. New York.
Christian Wood came into the game questionable with a non-Covid illness and will also play in Monday’s contest. Jalen Hood-Schifino and Gabe Vincent remain out with injuries.
With most of the Lakers roster healthy, they will look to get back on track at home against the Knicks.
