Anthony Davis off of crutches
Dave McMenamin: Avery Bradley (knee) is out tomorrow vs LAC, per Frank Vogel. The coach also said Kendrick Nunn (knee) has begun the ramp-up process again, but remains out. Carmelo Anthony (hamstring) was a full practice participant and is probable. Anthony Davis (foot) is off his crutches.
However, there’s another thing about Beal that’s been bugging me: Physically, there are times where I wonder if something is wrong, because his legs will just kinda … not play along with what his body wants to do.
If any other player had done it, I wouldn’t have thought twice about it. But this is an ongoing trend — I’m not going to exhaustively post every clip, but I’ve seen Beal do stuff like this several times this year. (Shout out to Mike Prada, who noticed the same thing.) I’m wondering if there isn’t something more going on there: Sometimes “slipping” like this is actually indicative of other problems. Or maybe he’s fine now; he certainly looked a lot better two days ago, smoking Utah for 37 points in a crucial road win. But it’s something to watch.
Ryan Ward: Updated Lakers’ status report. Anthony Davis, LeBron James and Avery Bradley are all PROBABLE: pic.twitter.com/rKZ4ejf9M0

Head coach Scott Brooks said postgame that Beal’s status going forward will be determined prior to their next game, Monday against the Pacers. “I haven’t talked to him or the staff, that’s all I know right now. He hit the floor pretty hard. But you know as well as I know, and I’ll keep saying it, he’s as tough as nails,” Brooks said. “I’ve been around a lot of guys that can bounce back, and he might be one of the best ones — actually we have two of them on our team. We’ll see how he feels tomorrow and make that decision come the next game.”
