The Los Angeles Lakers ruled out Anthony Davis and LeBron James for Wednesday night’s game at Toronto.

Davis is out with an illness, an ailment that forced him to leave Tuesday night’s game. James is experiencing left ankle soreness.

Additionally, guard Patrick Beverley is listed as doubtful against the Raptors with right knee soreness. Wenyen Gabriel is out with a left shoulder sprain.

Davis exited Tuesday’s game against the host Cleveland Cavaliers in the first quarter due to a 101-degree fever.

Davis was named the Western Conference Player of the Week on the heels of following up a 44-point, 10-rebound performance in the Lakers’ 133-129 victory in Milwaukee on Friday with a 55-point, 17-board effort two nights later in a 130-119 triumph at Washington.

James is averaging 25.8 points, 9.1 rebounds and 6.4 assists on the season.

The Raptors have ruled out Precious Achiuwa (ankle), Otto Porter Jr. (toe) and Juancho Hernangomez (ankle) for the game.
