Wesley Johnson (ankle) didn?t practice Saturday but is expected to play Sunday.

He is recovering from a minor ankle injury, and while not able to practice, the injury does not appear to be serious enough to keep him out of action Sunday against the Kings on the road.

Carlos Boozer scored 14 points (6-12 FGA, 2-5 FTA) with six rebounds and two assists in the Lakers' 104-103 loss to the Thunder on Friday.

Boozer has done a solid job for the Lakers since being moved to a bench role as he is now averaging 15.6 points and 10.2 rebounds while shooting 54.2 percent from the field over his last five games. Although his recent production may not be sustainable, fantasy owners will want to continue rolling with him while he is turning in his best production of the season.

Ed Davis scored 18 points (8-10 FGA, 2-2 FTA) with nine rebounds, two assists and two blocks in the Lakers' 104-103 loss to the Thunder on Friday.

Davis posted his best production on Friday night since joining the Lakers starting lineup, as he fell just one rebound shy of posting a double-double. With Carlos Boozer outperforming him on a nightly basis, it should be no surprise if Davis loses his starting job in the upcoming games despite a solid effort in this contest.

Kobe Bryant scored nine points (3-15 FGA, 3-4 FTA) going 0-for-3 from three-point range with eight rebounds and eight assists in the Lakers' 104-103 loss to the Thunder on Friday.

Bryant tied a season-low with nine points on Friday night as he failed to find his stroke in the Lakers' one-point loss to the Thunder. However, Bryant is now averaging 24.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.0 assists through 26 games, so despite a recent drop off he is still a must-start in all fantasy formats.

Nick Young was ejected in the fourth quarter Friday for a flagrant 2 foul against the Thunder. His night ends with 10 points (4-8 FGA/ 2-4 3PA), two rebounds and a steal in 13 minutes.

Young is the latest player to fall victim to Steven Adams, as Young was ejected for throwing an elbow to Adams's throat. Young could face further discipline from the league, and Wesley Johnson would likely see increased minutes if Young is suspended.

Ryan Kelly says he has one more day running on weight bearing treadmill and then should get back to running on the court.

Kelly has been out since November 16th due to a hamstring injury. He is making some progress now, and now has just a couple more steps before really ramping up his workouts. If running goes off without a hitch he should be back by mid January at the latest.

Carlos Boozer was practicing with the starters on Thursday.

Boozer recently lost his starting job, but has responded well to his demotion. Since becoming a reserve, Boozer has averaged 15.2 points and 10.2 rebounds and could see himself back in the starting lineup relatively soon.

Jordan Hill was sent home Thursday because of an upper respiratory infection.

The Lakers don't play again until Friday night, so Hill will likely rest over the next 24 hours in an attempt to be on the court when Los Angeles welcomes Oklahoma City. We should know more about his status on Friday afternoon.
