When the Los Angeles Lakers face the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night, they will look to snap a two-game losing streak.
Final Injury Reports Philadelphia 76Ers – LA Lakers
Los Angeles Lakers had won five of its previous six games before falling to the Cavaliers and Raptors in its final two. Following a double-overtime loss to Houston on Monday, Philadelphia 76ers is on its own three-game losing streak.
This season, the Lakers had a terrible start, dropping 10 of their first 12 games. The Lakers were able to avoid spiraling completely out of control by winning eight of their next 10 contests, with the two losses coming to Phoenix and Indiana.
Due to the absence of LeBron James (ankle) and Anthony Davis (flu), the Lakers were extremely undermanned on Friday night.
Additionally, power forward Wenyen Gabriel and point guard Patrick Beverley were absent due to injuries (shoulder).
Juan Toscano-Anderson, a small forward, started the game against Toronto on Wednesday before suffering an ankle injury that will keep him out indefinitely.
For this match, James, Davis, and Beverley are all listed as game-time decisions.
