After a big win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night the Los Angeles Lakers continue their East Coast road trip with a highly-anticipated game against the Philadelphia 76ers. This is a game between two of the best teams in their respective conferences and is bound to be extremely entertaining.
In fact, both of the Lakers-76ers games last season were absolute barnstormers. The first matchup between the two teams took an overtime period to settle the outcome, which paved the way for the second matchup to be decided by one point.
With the arrival of Tyrese Maxey, there is a lot of star power. But is all of that star power playing? There are some notable names on the Lakers injury report.
Is LeBron James playing tonight vs 76ers?
LeBron James is listed as questionable on the Lakers injury report with a left calf contusion. This may seem concerning for Lakers fans but this has simply been the status quo for LeBron on the injury report this season.
LeBron has been listed on the injury report every single game since he was forced to miss action with said calf injury. Even with that injury, LeBron has only missed one game this entire season.
Fans should expect LeBron James to suit up against the 76ers barring any kind of last-minute setback during warmups. If anything, LeBron will likely miss one of the next two games after the 76ers game, as the Lake Show has a road back-to-back on Wednesday and Thursday.
Full Lakers injury report vs 76ers:
Anthony Davis is also on the injury report and is listed as probable with a hip injury. Like LeBron, this has been the status quo for Davis since he suffered the initial hip injury and is not anything that Lakers fans have to worry about. Davis will suit up in this game.
Cam Reddish has also been listed as questionable with a groin injury. Reddish did not play on Saturday against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Second-year player Max Christie stepped up in his absence and actually played a great two-way game against Donovan Mitchell and Co.
Jarred Vanderbilt and Gabe Vincent have both been ruled out. Vanderbilt is nearing a return, which would be his season debut when it eventually comes. Vincent is still awaiting a re-evaluation for his knee injury.
Rui Hachimura has also been ruled out. Hachimura suffered a nasal fracture and underwent surgery to repair it on Friday. He will be re-evaluated this coming Friday.
