LeBron James and Anthony Davis are expected to play for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Denver Nuggets on Thursday.

James (left ankle sprain) and Davis (right quad contusion) are listed as probable by the Lakers for the game.

The defending champions have upgraded the status of James and Davis, who were questionable in the Lakers’ previous matches.

The Lakers (16-6) want to extend their winning streak to three games. Meanwhile, the Nuggets (12-8) want to come closer to the top of the West, as they are 3.5 games behind the Utah Jazz (16-5).
