Celtics vs. Lakers: Latest injury updates on Anthony Davis, Jaylen Brown, Kemba Walker

The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers have not had their ideal starting lineups over the last week due to injuries, but both teams should have a full squad available for Monday night's showdown at TD Garden.

Celtics guards Kemba Walker (knee) and Jaylen Brown (thumb) both are expected to play, the team announced Monday. 

The Lakers announced that center Anthony Davis is available to play. Davis has missed the last five games after landing on his back in a scary fall versus the New York Knicks on  Jan. 7.

The Celtics enter this matchup in fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings with a 27-14 record. Boston has struggled of late with three consecutive losses. However, the C's have played really well at home this season with a 16-5 mark at TD Garden.

The Lakers sit atop the Western Conference standings at 34-8 (including a league-best 18-3 road record) and have won nine of their last 10 games. They beat the Celtics in Boston last season on a Rajon Rondo buzzer-beater. The C's beat the Lakers at Staples Center to even the 2018-19 season series, and Boston has won four of the last six meetings in this rivalry overall.

That's about as accurate as it gets.

As much as it seems Kanter is making the most of quarantine life, he's itching to get back onto the court. He recently expressed concern about the NBA season potentially getting cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, which especially would be crushing since the C's are in the mix for a title.

Former Celtics star Paul Pierce wants in on virtual game of HORSE

Former Celtics star Paul Pierce wants in on virtual game of HORSE

A virtual game of HORSE? The NBA certainly is trying to get creative amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The NBA and ESPN are working on televising a HORSE competition involving "several high-profile players," according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The competitors would take shots from their home gyms and have to match those of other players.

Will one of those "high-profile players" be former Boston Celtics star Paul Pierce? It's possible, and he wants in on the competition.

The 10-time All-Star actually could make a splash in the competition -- he shot 44.5 percent from the field and 36.8 percent from beyond the arc in his 19-year NBA career. 

If the 42-year-old ends up competing in the competition, the only thing going against him would be his age. However, if he's anything like Tom Brady then he'll be just fine. 

With the NBA season on pause due to the COVID-19 outbreak, a HORSE competition could be pretty fun to watch.
