LeBron James is expected to miss the clash after suffering a groin injury against the Golden State Warriors on Christmas Day.
Lakers coach Luke Walton has admitted he will not rush the NBA superstar back.
“Obviously, we want him back soon as possible,” he said.
“But we also will be very cautious when we bring him back.”
Immediately after the match LeBron said he wasn’t overly concerned about the problems.
He said: ”With injuries, I’m never too concerned with them. I was able to walk off on my own power.
“I felt a pop and see if I could stretch it a few times to see if it would relieve but it didn’t.
“The good thing is the muscle is intact.”
