  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Leads Lakers in Game 2 defeat

    Davis ended Monday's 101-99 loss to the Nuggets in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals with 32 points (14-19 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal over 39 minutes.

    Davis has led the Lakers in scoring in each of the first two games of the series, but despite producing back-to-back 30-plus point efforts in the matchup against Nikola Jokic, the Lakers have fallen short of victory both times. Davis will likely land on the injury report ahead of Game 3, but given the situation and the workload he's handled in the first two games of the series, the star big man shouldn't have problems being active for Game 3 on Thursday.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Sniffs triple-double in loss

    James ended with 26 points (9-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-7 FT), eight rebounds, 12 assists, two blocks and two steals over 38 minutes during Monday's 101-99 loss to the Nuggets in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    James finished just two rebounds shy of a triple-double Monday, and even though the 39-year-old forward is competing at a high level, it seems the Lakers keep falling short against Denver. James has recorded at least 25 points, six rebounds and eight assists in the first two games of the series, and he should continue to have a high usage rate during Game 3 on Thursday.

  • Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Shows improvement in Game 2

    Russell logged 23 points (8-16 FG, 7-11 3Pt), three rebounds and six assists across 39 minutes during Monday's 101-99 loss to the Nuggets in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Russell delivered a much-improved effort compared to Game 1 when he notched 13 points while shooting poorly from the field (6-20 FG, 1-9 3Pt). However, his strong contributions were not enough Monday, as the Lakers wasted a 20-point lead and lost the game on a buzzer-beater from Jamal Murray. Nonetheless, the uptick in efficiency is nice to see from Russell, who should have a pivotal role on offense in Thursday's decisive Game 3.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Officially active

    Davis (back) has been cleared to play in Monday's Game 2 against Denver, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Davis was labeled as probable for Monday's matchup due to low back soreness, and he's since been given the green light to suit up. He'll need another big performance in Game 2 for LA to even the series.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Gets green light

    James (ankle) will play in Monday's Game 2 against the Nuggets, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    James was initially added to the team's injury report as probable, so this update was expected. He'll need to be a key piece of the puzzle again in Game 2 for the Lakers to have a chance to steal a win on the road.

    Vanderbilt (foot) "exerted himself at a high level" following the Lakers' morning shootaround but will remain out for Monday's Game 2 against the Nuggets, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    Head coach Darvin Ham noted in his pregame press conference that the team will wait to see how Vanderbilt responds Tuesday before determining his next steps toward a return. Vanderbilt hasn't played since Feb. 1 due to a right mid-foot sprain.

  • Lakers' Cam Reddish: Out for Game 2

    Reddish (ankle) is out for Monday's Game 2 against the Nuggets, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    Reddish will miss the second game of the Lakers' first-round series due to an ankle sprain he suffered late in the regular season. Taurean Prince will likely continue to see valuable minutes off the bench in his absence.
