LeBron James, Anthony Davis, D’Angelo Russell will play vs. Clippers

The Los Angeles Lakers had to overexert themselves on Tuesday to get a narrow overtime win over the Utah Jazz, 135-133, and there was a feeling it would result in some absences on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Clippers.

In particular, the status of LeBron James and Anthony Davis was in question after both, who are still nursing lingering injuries, played big minutes in Salt Lake City.

The good news is both will play, as will point guard D’Angelo Russell, who was out on Tuesday. In addition, backup center Mo Bamba, who has been out for about a month with a sprained ankle, will be available to play.

This contest will have major playoff implications for both squads. If the Lakers win, they could go from seventh place to fifth place in the Western Conference, which would be a major step in their quest to avoid the play-in tournament.
