Rockets vs Lakers Live Info: The Houston Rockets (1-4) kick off a five-game road trip on Sunday night against LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and the star-studded Los Angeles Lakers (3-3). If you’re wondering how you can watch the action from Staples Center live, you’ve come to the right place.
Led by promising talents such as Jalen Green, Kevin Porter Jr., and Christian Wood, the young Rockets are currently in the middle of a rough scheduling stretch. Sunday’s game is the fourth of a seven-game run in which each opponent made the playoffs last season, and it’s the first of two straight games versus the Lakers — with a rematch coming Tuesday.
Making matters worse, Houston will again be shorthanded. Danuel House Jr. remains sidelined by a right foot sprain, though Porter could return after leaving Thursday’s game early due to a sprained left ankle.

Between Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, Trevor Ariza, and Avery Bradley, the Lakers have five former Rockets on the roster.
The Los Angeles injury report is long, though many of the listed names appear likely to play. Ariza (right ankle), Talen Horton-Tucker (right thumb), and Kendrick Nunn (right knee bone bruise) are listed as out; Wayne Ellington (left hamstring) and James (right ankle) are questionable; and Davis (right knee) is listed as probable.
Barring a setback, it appears likely that James will play, since his injury dates back to earlier in the week — and he played successfully on the ankle with 26 points and 8 assists during Friday’s win over Cleveland. Assuming he does, that will likely make the Rockets sizable underdogs.
