Also, they faced two consecutive losses, the latest being against the New York Knicks.

Anthony Davis is questionable due to a left ankle sprain. LeBron James has been playing and performing at the top despite difficulties. But due to a left calf contusion, he has a questionable status for the Bulls game, as reported by ESPN. For point guard, Gabe Vincent has been categorized as probable. He missed all first four season games due to a left knee effusion. He might play for a few minutes only such that he doesn’t injure himself again.

Jarred Vanderbilt is questionable due to left heel bursitis. But despite the injuries and probable and questionable statuses earlier, Anthony Davis, Lebron James, and Vanderbilt who form the power of the Lakers stepped on the hardwood. They played the matches for the Lakers earlier and therefore might be available for the game.
Earlier LeBron was doubtful for the game against the New York Knicks, but he went on to score 109th career triple-double in the match. And fans expect him to not just play but do some typical LeBron James stuff. There are injury woes in the Lakers camp but the ranks of the Bulls too are filled with similar concerns.

Injury Scenario in the Bulls Camp

While it seems difficult for the Bulls will strike fear among the Lakers given the record and the run, their injury scene seems even more grim. Lonzo Ball will not be available due to left knee issues. LaVine’s right foot inflammation has been making it difficult for the star and the team since November as he has been out of action.

Torry Craig’s right heel soreness too is a worry for the Bulls fans that will make him unavailable for the match. Onuralp Bitim’s nasal fracture and Henri Drell’s right thumb sprain have restrained the two stars from participating. Caruso (left ankle sprain), and Patrick Williams, (right calf strain) are probable for the game at the United Center.
