The Kings will be short-handed for Thursday’s game. Kent Bazemore (calf) will miss a fourth consecutive game, Richaun Holmes (hip) will miss his third in a row, and De’Aaron Fox (shoulder) will skip his second straight. Sacramento has been eliminated from playoff competition. 

What you need to know about the Lakers

Los Angeles slid by the Denver Nuggets 124-121 on Monday thanks to a clutch deep 3-pointer from Kyle Kuzma as the clock expired. It was a big night for Anthony Davis, who had 27 points and five assists along with six boards. LeBron James had 29 points and 12 rebounds. 

The win stopped a three-game losing streak for the Lakers. James (groin) is expected to play limited minutes on Thursday, while Davis (knee) is expected to sit. Los Angeles has clinched the top seed in the Western Conference.
