Then, LeBron reportedly supposed to return for Lakers-Rockets tonight. Not occurring, both.
Nor will Anthony Davis play towards Houston.
Dave McMenamin of ESPN:
As is Davis’ harm.
LeBron and Davis provide championship potential. Maybe, they’ll get on monitor and lead the Lakers by way of the postseason. However the odds of Los Angeles defending its title have by no means regarded so lengthy.
With simply three video games remaining, the seventh-place Lakers must win two extra video games than the Path Blazers or Mavericks to say the No. 6 seed and immediately qualify for the playoffs. Possibly Los Angeles is simply accepting the play-in match and never pushing these previous few video games.
That mentioned, even with out LeBron and Davis, the Lakers can beat the lowly Rockets.
