Los Angeles Lakers DFS Spin

LeBron James (ankle) is listed as probable for Friday vs. the Pacers. LeBron has essentially been probable for the entire season so far with this "ankle injury." He finally took a game off for rest before the All-Star break but should be back in his usual role vs. the Pacers. It sounds like help is on the way too with the Lakers expected to provide an update on Anthony Davis on Friday night.
