After Anthony Davis was spotted in a Lakers shootout on Monday, coach Frank Vogel said the All-Star striker would be “listed as likely” for Monday night’s game against the Charlotte Hornets at Staples Center.
Davis left after the first quarter of Saturday’s game at Portland due to a stomach ailment that is still a problem. Davis also dislocated his right thumb during Thursday night’s loss to Oklahoma City, which is still painful.
“I feel better because of my stomach trouble. I think he’s still struggling with colds, sinus congestion in his head, ”Vogel said of Davis. “But the thumb still hurts, but he’s going to play with it. So it won’t hurt him. So it is listed as probable. ”
Vogel said LeBron James has “no change” and “no schedule” to return from the stomach overload that has kept him out of the last two games.
Vogel said James “shot a little bit” on Monday.
Tuesday will mark one month since third-year security guard Talen Horton-Tucker underwent surgery on his right thumb.

He received permission to contact on Tuesday and is looking forward to training. Horton-Tucker said he worked with a physical therapist.
“Mentally, I just try to stay positive about everything,” he said. “It’s hard to watch basketball, it’s just that my opponent wants to go out and play. Just making progress, trying to play with contact tomorrow, so being able to go out and move around and hang out with my teammates will be great again, so I’m thrilled. ”
Even Vogel said he was in bad weather “a lot, not quite a bit.”
