After winning last year’s NBA title, the Lakers are looking to repeat this season.

Davis and James have both missed a big chunk of time due to injuries, and Los Angeles has fallen to the No. 5 seed in the Western Conference with a 34-21 record.

Still, the Lakers are only one game behind the Denver Nuggets for the No. 4 seed and certainly could make a push once James and Davis return.

James has been out since he injured his ankle against the Atlanta Hawks on March 20. Davis has been out even longer with a calf injury and hasn’t appeared in a game since Feb. 14.
