The Lakers could be without several players in the lineup against the Denver Nuggets on Monday night.

More specifically, LeBron James (right ankle sprain) and Dennis Schroder (Health and Safety protocols) have been ruled out for the contest.

At the same time, five Lakers players (Kentavious Caldwell-Pope – right ankle sprain, Alex Caruso – back spasms, Anthony Davis – right calf strain, Marc Gasol – volar plate fracture, left pinkie finger, Kyle Kuzma – left thumb sprain) are probable for the game.

The Lakers are on a three-game losing streak and are sixth in the West, at 36-28. Meanwhile, the Nuggets have won their last four games and are third with a 43-21 record.
