The Los Angeles Lakers released their injury report for their matchup on Monday night against the Houston Rockets.

LeBron James (left ankle peroneal tendinopathy) and Anthony Davis (bilateral Achilles tendinopathy) are both listed by the Lakers as questionable. Gabe Vincent (left knee surgery) and Cam Reddish (right ankle sprain) will not play versus Houston.

James and Davis were both active in Saturday’s Lakers game against the Golden State Warriors. But since that game went into double overtime, it’s possible that the Lakers’ two stars have a bit more wear and tear than usual.

Anthony Davis Still Believes He And LeBron James Can Lead Lakers To Another  Championship

Despite turning 39 in December, James has performed at an incredibly high level this season.

The four-time NBA champion shoots 39.9 percent from three-point range and 52.1 percent from the field per game, averaging 25.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 7.6 assists. James is shooting a very high percentage, marking the greatest mark he has had while playing for the Miami Heat in 2012–13.

James has only missed five of the Lakers’ 47 games this season, despite being rated as questionable.

Davis has been even more durable than James this season, playing in 45 contests.

The star big man is averaging 25.0 points, 12.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.4 blocks per game this season. Davis is shooting 55.5 percent from the field and 27.5 percent from 3-point range.

Los Angeles would love to have both players in action against Houston. Monday will be the fourth time that the Rockets and Lakers face off this season.

The Lakers lost the first meeting on Nov. 8, but they have bounced back to win the last two. The team could take the season series with a win on Monday night.

After winning their past two games, they moved up to the Western Conference’s No. 9 seed. Now at 24-23, the squad is hoping to avoid going below.500 when they play Houston.

With a 21–24 record and a 3–7 record in their previous 10 games, the Rockets are now the No. 11 seed in the Western Conference going into Monday’s game.

In Houston, both teams are expected to tip off at 5 p.m. PST.
