Lakers at Suns: Live stream, lineups, injury reports and broadcast info for Wednesday

By Sanjesh Singh

The Los Angeles Lakers play the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

It’s a rematch of last year’s first-round playoff series, but the Lakers are bringing a different squad to Phoenix. LeBron James, Russell Westbrook and Trevor Ariza will not play. Carmelo Anthony and Anthony Davis will, and head coach Frank Vogel said either DeAndre Jordan or Dwight Howard will play, meaning Davis could get more center minutes.

The Suns lost to the Sacramento Kings, 117-106 , in their preseason opener. They will have Chris Paul and Jae Crowder play limited minutes. Devin Booker is slated to be out for the second straight game as well (rest).

It’ll be interesting to see how Vogel’s rotation looks with Anthony making his debut for L.A., including how Malik Monk’s impressive start could see him have a bigger role.

Here’s when you should tune in to see the game:
