The fans in Cleveland might not see their former star LeBron James in action when the Lakers visit the Cavaliers later today. The four-time NBA champion is listed as questionable due to a left knee soreness/effusion.
Wayne Ellington is also questionable due to non-Covid related illness. Wenyen Gabriel (left ankle sprain) and Talen Horton-Tucker (left ankle sprain) are both probable. Kendrick Nunn (right knee bone bruise) and Anthony Davis (right mid-foot sprain) remain out for Los Angeles.
For the Cavs, four players are out: Jarrett Allen (left 3rd finger fracture), Rajon Rondo (right ankle sprain), Collin Sexton (left knee meniscal tear), and Dean Wade (right knee soreness).
The Lakers are tenth in the Western Conference which is the last place for the play-in tournament. They are 2.5 games above the eleventh-placed Spurs.
Meanwhile, the Cavaliers are in sixth place in the Eastern Conference and just a single game above the seventh-placed Raptors.
