LeBron James (ankle) officially questionable Friday for Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) is questionable to play on Friday versus the New Orleans Pelicans.

What It Means:

There is some hope that James will be able to return on Friday for the second leg of the Lakers' back-to-back set, but he might wind up being a game-time decision. Anthony Davis (foot) is also questionable. Russell Westbrook and Malik Monk will not have as many opportunities on offense if James is cleared, and Wenyen Gabriel (ankle, questionable) will likely lose his spot in the starting lineup.

numberFire’s models project LeBron for 36.3 minutes and 47.7 FanDuel points, and he has a $11,000 salary on Friday’s 10-game slate.
