LeBron James’s Status Revealed For Tonight’s Game vs Atlanta

James was questionable heading into tonight’s game vs the Hawks

After being questionable coming into tonight’s game vs Atlanta, the Lakers just revealed LeBron James’s playing status for tonight.

James is going to be available to play tonight.

Coming off of losses to Portland and Utah, the performance from the Hawks last night against the Clippers came out of nowhere.

The offense for the Hawks was very good against the Clippers and it came with Dejounte Murray not having to take a lot of shots. Murray has had to be the focal point of the offense and while he has been scoring 30-40 points, it has not been the most efficient way of running the offense. Murray scored 21 points and had 10 assists last night in the win over the Clippers. The Laker’s defense is tough, but how tough will be depending on if Davis plays or not.

Bogdanovic had a terrific second quarter last night, scoring 11 points, but that was it for him. He did not do much else outside of the second quarter and left the game late. Keep an eye on his status.

Vit Krejci is continuing to start for the Hawks in the absence of Bey. Krejci is shooting 30% (4-13) from three and has made some improvements as a defender during his time as a starter. Krejci is not asked to do much and is splitting time with De’Andre Hunter, who is playing fantastic.

After an inefficient first game back, Jalen Johnson looked fantastic on both ends of the floor for Atlanta last night. He finished with 18 points on 7-14 shooting as well as grabbing 12 rebounds and dishing out six assists.

Clint Capela has had a double-double in five straight games and he is going to have a chance for another big game tonight. He had 15 points and 13 rebounds last night.

Hunter continues to lead the bench unit and he had another 20-point game last night and shot 8-13 from the field. Hunter has been one of the NBA’s best bench players since coming back from his injury and has been shooting exceptionally well.

Bruno Fernando, Garrison Matthews, Wesley Matthews, and Trent Forrest will be the bench unit for the Hawks tonight along with Hunter. Fernando has been solid for the Hawks in Okongwu’s absence while both Wesley and Garrison have been giving the Hawks solid three-point shooting.
