Los Angeles Lakers Roster

Los Angeles Lakers guard/forward Cam Reddish (groin) appears ready to rejoin the lineup on Wednesday versus the Pistons, as the team has listed him as probable for the contest. The 24-year-old has been unavailable for the last three games due to a groin strain. Reddish's numbers don't really stand out, but he's found his way into the starting unit and has impressed with his defensive displays. Reddish's return is poised to push Max Christie back to the bench, although he could still get a healthy dose of minutes on Wednesday, as the Lakers are expected to dominate the game, and it could turn into a blowout.
Los Angeles Lakers forward/center Anthony Davis (groin/hip) is considered probable for Wednesday's game against Detroit. The Lakers big man is currently battling with multiple health issues, but he's been available for all but one game in 2023-24 and is expected to play on Wednesday. Davis is tied for the league lead with 2.8 blocks and has registered six consecutive double-doubles, but he continues to be quite inconsistent. On paper, he should dominate against the league's worst team on Wednesday.
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (calf) is currently listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Detroit Pistons. The superstar forward is back on the injury report due to a left calf contusion. The expectation is that he'll play through the issue. However, it's worth noting that this game is the front end of a back-to-back set. It wouldn't be shocking to see the Lakers rest James on Wednesday against the weaker opponent in the Pistons. The absence of James would mean more minutes for Christian Wood and Jaxson Hayes in the rotation. Between the two, Wood is the better streaming option for Wednesday's slate. Fantasy managers will have to check back for another update on James' status.
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (calf) was listed as questionable heading into the Monday night matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers. The superstar forward was listed as questionable more for a formality as he's been on the injury report a number of times with the calf issue and has played anyway. He and Anthony Davis will both be in the starting five as usual and the team will likely lean on them with a number of others still out of the lineup.
Los Angeles Lakers guard/forward Cam Reddish (groin) has been downgraded from questionable and will not play on Monday against the Philadelphia 76ers. This will be his third consecutive game missed due to a groin strain. Since Gabe Vincent (knee) also remains out, Austin Reaves will likely handle most of the reserve duties while Max Christie will probably see added minutes as well.
