    According to Shams Charania of the Athletic, two players from the Lakers have tested positive for the coronavirus and the team may decide to test those players who were not tested Wednesday morning.

    The team did not announce which players had tested positive. With these two new confirmed cases of coronavirus, the league is up to 13 confirmed cases overall, including players and others who work in the organization.

    Anthony Davis (sore left elbow) and Alex Caruso (left hand contusion) are both expected to play on Thurday vs. the Rockets.

    Similar to LeBron James, Davis is a top-end talent that can be relied upon moving forward. Caruso is averaging just under 18 minutes per game off the bench and doesn't provide enough to warrant standard league value. He starts to enter fantasy relevance in 20-team leagues.

    Anthony Davis (sore left elbow) logged a team-high 37 minutes on Tuesday and dropped 26 points on 9-of-19 shooting with eight rebounds, four 3s, two assists and one block in a loss to the Nets on Tuesday.

    AD and LeBron James did their thing, scoring over 25 points in this one and yet the Lakers lost, highlighting the need for a reliable third scoring option. Overall, from a fantasy standpoint, AD is still a top-2 value on the season and is on point to finish in that range.

    Anthony Davis (sore left elbow) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

    Hopefully the probably tag is just precautionary. Davis will feast against a weak Nets' front court if he plays. LeBron James (groin) is also questionable, and Davis would be set up for a big night if James doesn't play.

    Anthony Davis, initially probable to play on Sunday, came through with a team-high 30 points as well as eight boards, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer in a win over the Clippers.

    Davis went 11-of-19 from the field and if there's one major edge that the Lakers have over the Clips, it's the presence of an elite center like AD. Not to be outdone, LeBron James hit big shot after big shot, including some dominant drives to emphasize that the NBA is still his show. The King finished with 28 points (12-of-14 FT), seven rebounds, nine assists, two blocks and two threes. The Lakers are now on the board in the season series.

    Anthony Davis (right knee soreness) is probable to play in Sunday's game vs. the Clippers.

    AD is just on his usual, precautionary listing on the injury report. Facing L.A. rivals, the Clippers, would be some good playoff practice, so it's a good bet that he'd make a strong effort to give it a go.

    Anthony Davis dealt with foul trouble in the first half, but still finished with 30 points (10-for-24 FG, 0-for-4 3PT), nine rebounds and two blocks in 29 minutes as the Lakers defeated the Bucks.

    It was nothing special from AD, but his surge of scoring in the second half helped the Lakers fend off a late run from the Bucks. The depth-challenged Lakers need Davis to produce every night to compete and he delivered the goods in the second half as the Lakers got the win.

    Anthony Davis (right knee soreness) and Alex Caruso (right hamstring soreness) are both officially probable ahead of Friday's showdown vs. the Bucks.

    Both players should be able to suit up for tomorrow's game barring any major setback. Obviously, Davis needs to be started across formats while Caruso is best left for deeper leagues.

    Anthony Davis (right knee soreness) feasted on the Simmons and Embiid-less Sixers on Tuesday, leading the Lakers to a 120-107 win with 37 points on 13-of-19 shooting and fat line.

    Davis tallied 13 rebounds, four 3-pointers, two assists, four steals and two blocks to round out one of his best lines this season. Wow. Just wow. When AD is on a roll like this not even a previously sore knee can slow him down. This is the pinnacle of fantasy value in all its glory. We're just here to bask in its radiance.

    Anthony Davis (right knee) will play on Tuesday vs. the Sixers.

    He missed the Lakers' previous game against the Pelicans but will make his return tonight against the Sixers. Davis has been on the injury report more times than you can count this year, but he has played in a large majority of those contests. He should be good to go. Kyle Kuzma's value decreases significantly and both Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee take a noticeable production hit with Davis returning.

    Anthony Davis (sore right knee) is being listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Sixers.

    It looks like Davis will be good to go for this matchup, in what should be an inviting one without Joel Embiid. Keep an eye on how the Sixers decide to go about matching the size of the Lakers and feel free to get Davis back into all lineups.

    Anthony Davis (sore right knee) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Sixers.

    Davis is typically probable for every game this season, so the fact that he's coming off a missed game with a questionable tag actually means we need to pay attention. He was a game-time decision on Sunday before sitting out, so he's probably on the good side of that questionable designation. His next chance to play should he miss Tuesday's game would be on Friday.

    Anthony Davis will miss Sunday's game against the Pelicans with a sore right knee.

    Davis is perpetually included on the injury report, but apparently this time it is for real. With AD missing this one Kyle Kuzma will enter the starting lineup for the Lakers and should be in for a solid night of production. Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee will also see more opportunities near the basket.

    Anthony Davis (sore right knee) is a true game-time decision on Sunday.

    Davis has been playing through probable tags all year but the knee injury is new, and it sounds like he might sit out this SEGABABA. If so, Kyle Kuzma would likely be elevated into the starting lineup and make for a fine DFS play.

    Anthony Davis (sore right knee) is questionable to play on Sunday.

    Davis played through a left elbow injury on Saturday, and he's been dealing with right shoulder issues for most of the season, so the knee is a new concern. The Lakers being on a back-to-back puts AD in more jeopardy of missing this one than usual, and if he does end up sitting out it'll mean plenty of usage for everyone else on the squad. Kyle Kuzma would likely move into the starting five.
