For this afternoon's game between the LA Lakers and the Phoenix Suns, the Lakers injury reported update has Anthony Davis, LeBron James, and Cam Reddish as questionable while Jarred Vanderbilt, Gabe Vincent, and Christian Wood are all out.

Jalen Hood-Schifino and Maxwell Lewis also aren't available as they are currently with the South Bay Lakers. For Phoenix, they've listed Bradley Beal as out and Jusuf Nurkic as probable. So the team will depend on how LeBron James and AD are doing up to the last moment to decide on whether they will be playing or not.

Now that we have 24 games left in the season for the Los Angeles Lakers, the fans should be rooting for more than the win of the team over the Phoenix Suns as the squad intends to climb seeds in the Western Conference to make it straight to the playoffs and avoid the Play-In Tournament.

What the Lakers fans should be rooting for in this afternoon games today: The Lakers WIN over the Suns. The Mavs lost to the Pacers. Pelicans lose to Bulls. Warriors lose to Nuggets. Jazz lost to Spurs. Rockets lose to Thunder and the Kings to lose.
