Every single game from here on out is a huge game for the Los Angeles Lakers. The team is looking to climb up the clustered Western Conference standings to at least have a chance to extend the season with a playoff run.
Los Angeles had a huge opportunity to gain some much-needed momentum with games against the Houston Rockets and a depleted Dallas Mavericks team. Instead, the Lakers dropped the game to Houston without Anthony Davis and lost to Dallas because of Anthony Davis.
Davis now finds himself on the Lakers injury report for Sunday’s game against the Orlando Magic. Is it something to worry about? Here is everything you need to know.
Anthony Davis injury update vs Magic:
While Anthony Davis is listed on the Lakers injury report as day-to-day, it is nothing to worry about for Sunday’s game. This has been the status quo for AD and the Lakers since he returned from his foot injury.
Davis has been listed on every single injury report since he came back from injury and unless it was the second leg of a back-to-back, Davis would play. This is not the second leg of a back-to-back, so the star forward should be out there against Orlando barring a last-second development.
Los Angeles has one more back-to-back on April 4 and April 5 against the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers.
Full Lakers injury report vs Magic:
There are no new injuries that Lakers fans have to worry about in this matchup. Both LeBron James and Mo Bamba remain out of action with their respective injuries but that is not news to Los Angeles.
Against a young Magic team that can sneak up on you (just ask the Clippers after Saturday night), it is important that the Lakers have a clean bill of health.
Full Magic injury report vs Lakers:
Orlando also enters this game with a relatively clean bill of health. Jonathan Isaac (hamstring) is out but has been out since he had season-ending surgery in early March. Isaac played only 11 games this season before the injury after missing all of the last two seasons with an ACL injury.
Jalen Suggs is listed as day-to-day with a concussion. The young guard was ruled out against the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday, so there is a decent chance that he will not be suiting up on Sunday.
