Lakers vs. Wizards: Lineups, injury reports and broadcast info for Thursday

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

The Lakers are early in a brutal stretch of their remaining schedule, but this game should be a respite. The Wizards are tied for the worst record in the NBA (9-49). They’re the coldest team in the league right now. They’re on a 12-game losing streak and have dropped 24 of their last 27. They’re last in defensive rating, and they have defeated just one team all season that currently has a winning record.

The Lakers are coming off a thrilling and impressive come-from-behind 116-112 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday. LeBron James scored 19 of his 34 points in the fourth quarter, allowing his team to overcome a 21-point deficit. In fact, he outscored the entire Clippers team by three in the period.

The win improved the Lakers’ record to 32-28 and elevated them into ninth place in the Western Conference. They’re three games behind the fifth-place Phoenix Suns, a team they defeated, 3-2, in the teams’ season series.
