The Lakers are dealing with injuries to key players and will be shorthanded against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday.

The defending champions will be without Alex Caruso (right hand strain) and Anthony Davis (Achilles injury), who will sit out for precautionary reasons.

Meanwhile, the Lakers (18-6) are on a four-game winning streak and want to win their fifth straight and come closer to the top of the West.
