The game tips off at 3 p.m. PT and can be seen on NBA TV, Spectrum SportsNet and Bally Sports Sun.
Los Angeles (23-23) is coming off a double-digit win against the Orlando Magic and now travel a little further south for this game against Miami. Anthony Davis will be a game-time decision, so his status will be something to monitor. He’s certainly inching closer to a return.
Miami (29-17) has won six of its last eight games, and Jimmy Butler has returned recently with a mixed bag of results in his performances. However, the Heat will be without two key guards in Kyle Lowry and Tyler Herro. The Lakers defeated Miami earlier in the season without LeBron James, so it’ll be interesting to see how this one goes.
Lakers at Heat notable injuries:
Lakers: OUT – Kendrick Nunn (knee); Questionable – Anthony Davis (MCL); Probable – LeBron James (abdominal)
Heat: OUT – Tyler Herro (health and safety protocol), Kyle Lowry (personal reasons), Markieff Morris (return to competition reconditioning), KZ Okpala (wrist), Victor Oladipo (knee); Questionable – P.J. Tucker (calf)
- Point spread: Heat -2.5
- Money line: Heat -140 / Lakers +115
- Over-under: 215.5

Advice and prediction
Whether AD plays, this feels like a game the Lakers should win. LeBron is back in Miami, but also, the Heat are without two key contributors. The Lakers just need to ensure reserves like Max Strus or Gabe Vincent don’t get hot because if they do, that’ll spell trouble for L.A.
But with the odds this close, take the Lakers plus-2.5, Lakers plus-115 and the under 215.5.
Prediction: Lakers 104, Heat 100
