Brad Turner @BA_Turner
LeBron available but AD listed as questionable but most likely out, per Vogel. Fever returned – 5:32 PM

Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
Imagine telling someone before the start of the season that, in a game they sorta need, the Lakers (w/ LeBron and Russ and likely AD all in the lineup) would be getting 5 points against an 8-11 Pacers team on Thanksgiving Eve … And that you still not confident taking LA! lol pic.twitter.com/ipcITcfQrA4:38 PM

Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney
LeBron James was suspended. Anthony Davis played sick. Then the Lakers created another problem for themselves by falling into a 25-point hole in a loss to the New York Knicks.

Dave McMenamin @mcten
Full quote from Anthony Davis disputing LeBron James’ one-game suspension stemming from the Detroit incident: pic.twitter.com/hkaJEIwMuC11:28 PM

Michael Scotto @MikeAScotto
Anthony Davis was surprised the NBA suspended LeBron James.
“The report came out and said his hit to the face caused the incident, which is weird because he can’t control how a guy is going to react. Guys get hit in the face all the time.”
Isaiah Stewart faces LeBron on Sunday. pic.twitter.com/285Q1ADTJ811:12 PM

Dave McMenamin @mcten
A. Davis took exception to the explanation the team got for LeBron getting suspended because his hit to Isaiah Stewart’s face caused the incident. AD said that nobody could expect that kind of reaction from Stewart. Davis says he’s hit in the face a ton and doesn’t react that way – 10:59 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Anthony Davis said he was surprised by LeBron’s penalty: “I don’t think anyone thought he would be suspended, to be honest. It was an accident. He accidentally hit him in the face.” – 10:54 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Anthony Davis said his prep was like an AAU event because he spent so long waiting for his fever to break: arrive, dress and go play. It took him some time to feel loose in the game itself. – 10:52 PM

Ryan Ward @RyanWardLA
Anthony Davis on his illness: “Woke up not feeling well. Headache. All flu-symptoms, really. … It’s kind of what the day was today.” – 10:51 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Russell Westbrook said his communication has gotten “a lot better” with Anthony Davis, that they’re figuring out more how they’re being guarded. – 10:45 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Frank Vogel said he thought Anthony Davis wasn’t going to play tonight. The fever broke around 5. Before that, the Lakers didn’t think that AD was even coming to the arena. – 10:23 PM

Ryan Ward @RyanWardLA
Frank Vogel on AD: “We thought he wasn’t going to play.” – 10:22 PM

Dave McMenamin @mcten
Lakers lose 106-100 in NYK to fall to 9-10 and 1-3 on their five-game road trip that ends tomorrow in IND. Westbrook 31p on 10-of-18 13r 10a 2s 6tos; AD 20p 5-of-11 FTs 6r; Bradley 15p 9r 2s; Melo 12p on 3-of-14 shooting; Monk 12p on 5-of-14 4a 2s; THT 0p on 0-for-8 – 10:03 PM

@ESPNLosAngeles10:03 PM

Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
Final: Knicks 106, Lakers 100
The Lakers drop to 9-10 and 1-3 on this East Coast road trip. They’re 4-7 without LeBron James this season. Russell Westbrook had 31 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists. Anthony Davis had 20 points and 6 rebounds.
Up next: at Indiana tomorrow. – 10:02 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Nine misses at the FT line tonight for LAL, after AD missed a pair. He’s just 5 for 11 at the charity stripe tonight, as the Knicks lead 102-93 with 5:07 left. – 9:43 PM

Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
Halftime: Knicks 63, Lakers 51
The Lakers closed the half on a 10-2 run to trim the deficit by nearly half. FTs (12 of 19, 63.2%) are killing them, as this game should be closer. AD finally got going (11 pts). The Lakers are -15 in the 9 minutes Davis has been on the bench. – 8:41 PM

Allen Sliwa @AllenSliwa
Lakers at one point down 25, have cut the deficit to 12 at the half…Knicks lead 63-51…
Monk leads the way for the LakeShow with 12pts…AD has 11pts…Russ with 6pts 8rebs 5ast
@ESPNLosAngeles8:39 PM

Ryan McDonough @McDNBA
If the Lakers keep playing like this, Anthony Davis may demand a trade back to New Orleans – 8:25 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
AD checking back in. He played 7:50 in the first quarter. Looking like he’ll play a little less than usual tonight with his flu-like symptoms. – 8:17 PM

Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
Lakers’ starters vs. the Knicks:
DeAndre Jordan
Anthony Davis
Talen Horton-Tucker
Avery Bradley

Marc Berman @NYPost_Berman
Anthony Davis will play after all. Derrick Rose out with ankle. Buckle up. Knicks-Lakers. – 6:55 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Anthony Davis will start tonight in New York. He’d been questionable (woke up with a fever), but clearly felt well enough to play after warming up. – 6:49 PM

Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
