The Lakers will once again be short-handed, while LeBron James will remain out of action for another game.

This time, the Lakers have five players unavailable for the game vs the Chicago Bulls on Monday. Trevor Ariza, Sekou Doumbouya, Kendrick Nunn, James and Austin Reaves will miss tonight’s game. All five of them are dealing with injuries.

At the same time, the 17-time champions list Anthony Davis as probable with a left thumb sprain. Meanwhile, Jay Huff (two-way contract) is assigned to the G-League.

For their part, the Bulls have ruled out three players, while Coby White is questionable. Zach Lavine, however, will be in the lineup for the contest.
