LAS VEGAS- Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma will both play in their second game in two nights when the Los Angeles Lakers take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in their second Las Vegas Summer League playoff game, the team announced.

Both Ball (groin) and Kuzma (cramping) missed the Lakers’ Monday win over the Sacramento Kings Monday before returning for the team’s comeback victory against the Philadelphia 76ers Wednesday.

The Lakers’ injury report isn’t bare, however. The team says that P.J. Dozier and Josh Hart (sprained ankles) will both remain out Thursday night.

The Lakers take on the Cavaliers at 7:30 p.m. PT at the Thomas and Mack Center Thursday. With a victory the team would play Saturday at 7:00 p.m. PT, and a loss would give them a consolation game Friday at 7:30 p.m. PT.
