Amazingly, the Lakers, despite their embarrassing season, are in the driver’s seat for... 10th place in the West. OK, that’s not good, but — would you want to play LeBron James in a play-in game?? Especially if Anthony Davis is back?
Back to tonight, as of this writing James is still a game-time decision, but hopefully he suits up — the fans in Toronto deserve another chance to see The King play. Davis, though, remains out. Joining him in streetclothes tonight are Taken Horton-Tucker, Carmelo Anthony, and Wayne Ellington.
On the Raptors’ side, the only folks on the injury report are OG Anunoby and Malachi Flynn, who remain sidelined with their respective finger and hamstring injuries.
That’s all the updates we’ve got, settle in and enjoy everyone!
