Lakers vs. Rockets: Lineups, injury reports and broadcast info for Monday

The Los Angeles Lakers visit the Houston Rockets on Monday, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

The Lakers (24-23) began their six-game “Grammy” road trip on Saturday with a thrilling, classic 145-144 double-overtime win over Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors. LeBron James had one of the best games he has had in recent memory with 36 points, 20 rebounds and 12 assists, while D’Angelo Russell scored 24 of his 28 points after halftime.

Houston (21-24) looked like a solid team on the rise earlier this season by winning 13 of its first 22 contests, but it has fallen back to ground level. It has dropped six of its last eight, and its defense, which looked very strong in November, now has holes.

These two teams will meet for the fourth and final time during the 2023-24 campaign. L.A. lost the first meeting by 34 points without Anthony Davis, but it won the next two, and, overall, it has taken five of its last seven games.

How to watch

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

  • Date: Jan. 29, 2024
