UPDATE: Everybody on the Lakers is considered healthy, including James and Davis, per coach Frank Vogel.

Both Anthony Davis and LeBron James are on the Los Angeles Lakers injury report for Sunday vs. the Atlanta Hawks. The report is length. Davis is on there per usual with his shoulder injury, but James is dealing with an elbow issue that has him questionable to play. If James is ruled out, it would be his first missed game of the season. It would make sense for LeBron to sit a game on Sunday, with the focus on football anyway.

Fantasy Basketball Analysis: Los Angeles Lakers forwards Anthony Davis and LeBron James

So AD is always on the injury report so that’s nothing new, he’ll likely play. James could sit, like i mentioned above, since he hasn’t had any rest this season. If James is out, I would imagine Avery Bradley could end up starting alongside Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Danny Green with a three-guard rotation, along with James and JaVale McGee. Kyle Kuzma has been ruled out again with an ankle injury, so he won’t be able to fill in. Alex Caruso should see more minutes off the bench with Jared Dudley. Both are decent values given the Lakers should have an easy time with Atlanta — garbage minutes could come into play.
