The Pacers and Lakers are engaged in a battle of dueling injury reports - healthiest team wins!

The Pacers host the Lakers for a rare afternoon matinee at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Saturday.

The Pacers are trying their best to field a healthy playing rotation with hopes that a few players listed as questionable will be able to give it a go against the defending champs.

The Lakers are well aware of a loaded injury report and have plenty of firepower listed as questionable. However, with the season winding down, LeBron James, Anthony Davis and friends would like to get a run or two in before the playoffs begin, particularly if they remain in the play-in games.

Frank Vogel could use his return to the Fieldhouse as a championship coach for a postseason full dress rehearsal against his former team.
