Lakers vs. Spurs: Lineups, injury reports and broadcast info for Friday

The Los Angeles Lakers host the San Antonio Spurs on Friday, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

The Lakers, after winning 11 of their previous 16 games, lost 128-110 to the Golden State Warriors on Thursday without LeBron James, who sat out due to an ailing ankle. They return home looking to restart their momentum against a Spurs team that has the worst record in the Western Conference at 11-45.

The loss on Thursday dropped their record to 30-27, and they’re now clinging to ninth place in the West. In addition to James’ ankle ailment, they’re also dealing with backup big man Christian Wood being out of action. He’s expected to miss about two weeks due to swelling in his left knee.

The one thing San Antonio has going in its favor is rookie sensation Victor Wembanyama. The 7-foot-4 French phenom has been gradually stepping up his game throughout the season, and if nothing else, he has been a nightmare defensively in the paint.

This will be the third meeting between these two teams this season and the first at Arena. The season series is currently tied at 1-1.
