Lakers’ Anthony Davis to play tonight; LeBron James a game-time decision

Lakers forward Anthony Davis will play Friday night vs. the New Orleans Pelicans, the team announced, while LeBron James’ availability will be a game-time decision.

Davis has not played since Feb. 16 because of a sprained right foot sustained during a game against the Utah Jazz. The Lakers had targeted the game against the Pelicans or Sunday’s game against the Denver Nuggets as likely return dates.

James, who rolled his left ankle during a loss to the Pelicans on Sunday, will warm up for tonight’s game before a decision will be made about his availability.
