A total of nine Lakers players is included in the injury report for the home game against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday.

The Lakers list Jared Dudley (right MCL tear), LeBron James (right ankle sprain) and Dennis Schroder (Health and Safety protocols) as out for the contest.

In addition, Alex Caruso (right foot contusion) and Talen Horton-Tucker (right calf strain) are questionable for the game, while Kyle Kuzma is doubtful with lower back tightness.

Furthermore, three Lakers players (Kentavious Caldwell-Pope – right ankle sprain, Anthony Davis – right calf strain and Marc Gasol – volar plate fracture, left pinkie finger) are probable for the clash with the Suns.

For its part, Phoenix will be without two players in the game, as they are fighting for the top spot in the West. The Suns are second with a 48-19 record, 1.5 games behind the top-seeded Utah Jazz (50-18).

On the other hand, the Lakers are seventh (37-30) and have dropped to the play-in tournament zone.
