Lakers’ Davis, Caruso out for Pelicans game

NEW ORLEANS — The Los Angeles Lakers ruled out forward Anthony Davis and guard Alex Caruso for their game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday night.

The Lakers said Davis, who played his first seven seasons in New Orleans, has a sore right knee. Caruso has a sore right hamstring.

Both players started Saturday night in the Lakers’ 105-88 loss at Memphis, but Davis played 10 fewer minutes than usual and Caruso played just 20:33.

The Lakers also were without Troy Daniels, who was waived shortly before Sunday’s game. Los Angeles listed Danny Green and Avery Bradley as starters alongside LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma and JaVale McGee.
