UPDATE: Jan. 25, 6:39 p.m. — Davis, Rondo and Kuzma will all play vs. the Sixers, while McGee remains sidelined.

Anthony Davis and JaVale McGee are questionable, while Rajon Rondo and Kyle Kuzma are probable to play in Saturday’s game vs. the 76ers. McGee was the only player who missed Thursday’s game, so that could be the case again this weekend. AD has been playing through a glute injury and the Lakers have played a lot of basketball this week, so perhaps some rest is in order.

Fantasy basketball analysis for Lakers vs. 76ers

If AD is out, Kuzma will likely start and is in a decent spot with the Sixers missing Joel Embiid. Of course LeBron James would be a chalky play, but he could see a lot of Ben Simmons, who has played great defense this season. With JaVale sidelined Thursday, we saw Dwight Howard get his first start of the season.
