The Los Angeles Lakers will reportedly have Anthony Davis and LeBron James available for tonight’s Christmas showdown with the Los Angeles Clippers.
James sat out his first game of the season on Sunday, a loss against the Denver Nuggets, with a thoracic muscle strain and groin trouble. Davis injured his right knee in that same contest.
However, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Dave McMenamin are reporting that both are expected to play tomorrow night.
Davis and James practiced this morning and felt capable, per the ESPN report.

Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
The two teams met back on opening night, with the Clippers winning the first battle of LA 112-102.
