Update: LeBron James (rest) will not play vs. the Kings.
It feels like just yesterday we were talking about the Sacramento Kings maybe ending their long playoff drought. Those days appear to be over. The Kings might be the coldest team in the NBA entering Wednesday vs. the Lakers, losers of 10 of their past 11 games. You can’t really blame injuries for the Kings’ downfall. Their defense has been just awful and keeps getting worse. SacTown will play the first of a back-to-back set before the All-Star break with a matchup vs. the Portland Trail Blazers set for Thursday.
The Los Angeles Lakers were without Kyle Kuzma and Marc Gasol for Tuesday’s game against the Phoenix Suns. This will be the Lakers final game before the All-Star break, a stretch that runs for over a week before L.A. is back in action on March 12 vs. the Indiana Pacers. Anthony Davis (calf) is expected to return at some point after the break, though we haven’t received any updates there. The Lakers are positioned well with an easy second-half schedule to make a run at the No. 1 overall seed in the West.
