LeBron James made a big deal about not resting.

But he can’t avoid illness.

Shams Charania of The Athletic:

Both the Lakers (won seven straight) and Thunder (won 11 of 13) have played well lately. But this takes the shine off the matchup. Anthony Davis is also banged up.

At least we’ll get Chris Paul-Rajon Rondo. That’s often an interesting clash.
