Lakers vs. Nuggets: Stream, lineups, injury reports and broadcast info for Saturday

The Los Angeles Lakers host the Denver Nuggets on Saturday, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

The Lakers are trying to sustain a surge after putting together back-to-back wins following two losses in three games coming out of the All-Star break. Overall, they’ve won 14 of their last 21 contests, which has allowed them to remain in the hunt for a play-in tournament spot. However, they’re in just 10th place in the Western Conference with a 33-28 record.

Denver has won five games in a row, and with a 41-19 record, it is in third place in the West and just one game behind the first-place Minnesota Timberwolves. But it is somewhat banged up right now. Jamal Murray, its second-best player, injured his ankle on Thursday, and it is unknown if he will play on Saturday.

This will be the third time this season the Lakers have faced the defending NBA champs. They lost both of their previous meetings against Denver, and overall, they have lost seven in a row to Nikola Jokic’s crew.
