Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Lakers Prediction

The Warriors are aiming to triumph at home. LeBron is still blazing red and poses a serious threat to the Warriors’ defence. The Warriors could see some difficulties while facing the Lakers’ defence, even though Stephen Curry’s absence has not yet had an impact on them. However, the Golden State Warriors will start as favourites due to their overall success relative to the other team, current developments, and bookies’ preferences.

Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Lakers Injury Report

Golden State Warriors:

Stephen Curry

In a matchup with the Dallas Mavericks, Stephen Curry locked knees with a defender. The Warriors’ star had a similar, unpleasant experience, and he immediately rushed to the sidelines and departed the match. Steph’s superior tibiofibular ligaments and interosseous membrane were partially torn, according to a later report from the Warriors. They have currently declared Steph out till after the All-Star break. As time goes on, we’ll learn more about his injury. As Stephen Curry won’t be playing tonight, Warriors supporters will have to wait for now.

Gary Payton II

Gary Payton II’s failed physical has put a four-team trade that was finalised before Thursday’s deadline in peril. Payton had planned to rejoin the Golden State Warriors, with whom he had previously won a championship, but the examination, according to reports, had detected a core muscle ailment that may sideline him for up to three months.

Golden State Warriors: Stephen Curry, Gary Payton II, Ryan Rollins, Andre Iguodala

Los Angeles Lakers:

LeBron James

King James has been out due to left ankle discomfort since scoring his record-breaking 38,390th point on Tuesday night during the Lakers’ 133-130 loss to the Thunder. According to the team’s most recent injury report, they have rated LeBron James as questionable with left ankle soreness and will probably miss his 13th game of the season.

Anthony Davis

The good news is that Anthony Davis, despite having a stress fracture in his right foot, is probably going to play. Since AD hasn’t been doing well lately, Saturday’s game against the Warriors would be a fantastic opportunity for him to turn things around.
