San Antonio Spurs vs Los Angeles Lakers NBA Basketball Sports Odds and Free Predictions

The San Antonio Spurs will be without two key players and likely more when they face the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on Thursday.

Kawhi Leonard will miss his third straight game with a partial tear in his left shoulder, the team announced Wednesday afternoon. The two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year was injured Friday during a victory against the Phoenix Suns.

Rudy Gay, the Spurs' third-leading scorer at 11.5 points, will miss his seventh straight game with right heel bursitis.

San Antonio (28-14) might also be without its starting backcourt.

Tony Parker sprained his right ankle Monday at the Sacramento Kings and the six-time All Star is listed as doubtful against Los Angeles. Danny Green has missed the past four games with tightness in his left groin and is questionable.

Leonard missed the first 27 games this season while rehabilitating from quadriceps tendinopathy. He was playing his eighth game of the season against the Suns, and finished with 21 points, four steals and three blocks.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said it has been difficult finding the right combinations with so many key players out.

The Lakers (13-27) have dealt with their own injury woes this season, but they're healthy now and will be trying to win three games in a row for the first time and close out a five-game homestand on a positive note.

Los Angeles beat the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday and the Kings on Tuesday. The Lakers, Hawks and Kings have three of the five worst records in the NBA. San Antonio has the fifth-best record.

The Lakers committed a season-high 25 turnovers against Sacramento, a number that would be highly difficult to get away with against the Spurs.

The winning streak began one game after rookie point guard Lonzo Ball returned after missing six games with a sprained left shoulder, all of them losses. He was limited to five points on 2-for-10 shooting against Sacramento, but contributed 11 rebounds, 11 assists, five steals and committed only one turnover.eir past seven home contests, their only victories in a stretch that has seen them play 10 straight games in California. That streak will end Saturday.

Coach Dave Joerger told reporters before a 99-86 road loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday that he wanted to see his team play with a faster pace. They responded by committing 16 turnovers against the Lakers and shooting 34.5 percent from the floor.

The Kings are 27th among 30 NBA teams in pace (103.91), which measures possessions per game, and are last in scoring at 97.4 per contest.

Center Willie Cauley-Stein is averaging 15.6 points and 7.8 rebounds over his past 10 contests for Sacramento and rookie guard De'Aaron Fox has averaged 15.3 points and 6.0 assists in four games since returning from a partially torn right quadriceps muscle.

Los Angeles has won eight of the last 10 meetings.
