UPDATE: March 10, 10:41 p.m. — LeBron and AD will both start vs. the Nets.

UPDATE: March 10, 5:37 p.m. — James has been upgraded to probable on the 5:30 p.m. NBA Injury Report. It appears he’s on track to play against the Nets, as he alluded to earlier. Anthony Davis is still probable as well, so the Lakers should be almost 100% vs. the Nets. Dwight Howard (illness) is now being listed as out, however.

UPDATE: March 10, 2:00 p.m. — James plans to play vs. the Nets. He remains questionable, but told reporters he expects to go Tuesday night at home against Brooklyn.

Los Angeles Lakers G/F LeBron James ($10,900) is listed as questionable to play in Tuesday’s game vs. the Brooklyn Nets due to a groin injury. He’s already missed games this season due to groin issues and it was a groin injury that forced him to miss an extended period of time last season. Anthony Davis ($9,800; elbow) and Alex Caruso ($3,100; hamstring) are probable to play.

If James is unable to play, Rajon Rondo ($3,300) would likely move into the starting lineup and start at point guard. He’s made three starts in place of LeBron this season with an average of 35.83 DKFP. If the Lakers’ star is out, Davis would be in line for an uptick in usage, assuming he plays through his elbow injury. Without James on the court, AD has a 34.2% usage rating and scores 59.79 DKFP per 36 minutes.
