The Los Angeles Lakers have suffered another loss, this time to the Utah Jazz, who defeated the Lakers 122-109 on Thursday.

Both LeBron James and Anthony Davis were out against Utah and Lakers coach Frank Vogel had to improvise with his 37th-different starting lineup this season. The result was Los Angeles’ fourth-straight loss.

Now, everyone is expecting AD to return against his former team, the New Orleans Pelicans next.

“I don’t feel like we’ve caught ourselves yet,” Vogel said pre-game. “That was a big blow, having Bron go down.”

According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Davis could be back in the starting lineup on Friday.

“Lakers star Anthony Davis plans to return Friday vs. the Pelicans, barring setback, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. Davis has been sidelined since Feb. 16 due to mid-foot sprain. Big Lakers-Pelicans game with Play-In ramifications,” Charania tweeted.

LeBron James suffered what he recalled as a “horrible” ankle injury last week and has been sidelined since. James could also reportedly be back on Friday, but that’s far from certain.

The Lakers and the San Antonio Spurs are tied for the 10/11 seeds in the Western Conference at 31-44 (San Antonio has the tiebreaker), and New Orleans still has one game up against both teams.

A victory against the Pelicans would be a massive boost for the Lakers’ postseason chances.
