According to a report from John Gambadoro of ArizonaSports 98.7 FM, Anthony Davis is cleared to play a game of NBA basketball on the strained groin.

Davis will start alongside LeBron James, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Dennis Schroder and Marc Gasol.

Former starting center Andre Drummond has been benched.

In warmups on Tuesday, AD was barely able to move left to right and could not plant hard on the affected leg.

Gambo also reports that shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (knee strain, missed Game 4 and played sparingly in Game 5) is good to go for Game Six.

If the Lakers lose the game, they will be eliminated from the postseason.

In other news, Suns General Manager James Jones was highly confident on Wednesday that Chris Paul would play in Game Six, a good indication that Tuesday’s re-injury was more a scare than a long-term problem. The Suns listed Paul as PROBABLE but you can pen him into the starting lineup with his usual running mates.

Game 6 starts at 7:30 PM, and will be shown nationally on TNT and locally on Bally Sports Arizona.
