For another game this season, the Lakers will have several players unavailable, as they host the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday.

Rajon Rondo remains the only player in the protocols for the 17-time NBA champions. The veteran guard, though, could leave the team as soon as Friday and join the Cleveland Cavaliers. In addition, Anthony Davis and Kendrick Nunn remain out, due to injuries.

For his part, Trevor Ariza has cleared Covid-19 protocols and has returned to practice, with the Lakers listing him as questionable. In addition, Avery Bradley is also questionable, due to a head contusion.

The Lakers will seek to return to the winning track, following their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday (99-104). They currently are at 17-19 in the West.
