Little by little, the Los Angeles Lakers seem to be getting healthier.

It looks like there’s a chance they’ll have their full roster available to play tonight against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Anthony Davis has missed the last two games due to a bruised gluteus maximus, while James sat out their game against the Oklahoma City Thunder due to flu-like symptoms.

Danny Green also missed the contest against the Thunder due to a sore right hip.

Even though they were very shorthanded over the weekend, the Lakers achieved wins in consecutive days on the road against the Dallas Mavericks and Thunder.

L.A. not only won both games, but did so in impressive fashion, as it dominated at both ends of the floor. It averaged 127 points a game, thanks in part to Kyle Kuzma, who shook off trade rumors to score 26 points against Dallas and 36 versus the Thunder.

The Lakers will need to get fully healthy fairly fast. After hosting the Orlando Magic on Wednesday, L.A. will embark on a five-game road trip that may be its toughest of the season.

That trip will begin on Saturday against the Houston Rockets.
