A total of eight players are in the injury list of the Lakers for the game against the Clippers on Thursday night.

LeBron James (right ankle sprain), Dennis Schroder (Health and Safety protocols) and Jared Dudley (right MCL tear) remain out for the defending champions.

In addition, four Lakers players (Kentavious Caldwell-Pope – right ankle sprain, Anthony Davis – right calf strain, Marc Gasol – volar plate fracture, left pinkie finger, Kyle Kuzma – left thumb sprain) are probable for the contest.

Last but not least, Talen Horton-Tucker is listed as questionable by the Lakers, as he is dealing with a right calf strain.

The Lakers are currently sixth in the standings with a 37-28 record. Meanwhile, the Clippers have already clinched their place in the playoffs and are third in the West, at 44-22. The two rivals could meet in the opening round of the playoffs.
