Anthony Davis could miss Lakers' crucial game vs. Blazers

The slumping Los Angeles Lakers could be without both LeBron James and Anthony Davis when they visit the Portland Trail Blazers in Friday's crucial Western Conference contest.

James will miss his third straight game due to an aggravated ankle injury, while Davis left Thursday night's 118-94 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers due to back spasms. Davis indicated that an apparent right ankle injury won't be an issue and that his availability will depend on his back.

"The ankle is fine. It wasn't bothering me," Davis said after the Lakers lost for the seventh time in the past nine games. "The back locked up pretty bad. It's a little bit better now, we'll see how it is tomorrow. ... We'll test it out but my plan is to play."
