OKLAHOMA CITY — The Los Angeles Lakers could be without the bulk of their starting lineup Saturday against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

LeBron James is out because of an illness and flu-like symptoms and Danny Green also will miss the game because of a sore right hip, the team announced.

Anthony Davis, who missed Friday’s win in Dallas because of a bruised buttocks injury suffered earlier in the week versus New York, is considered questionable. Avery Bradley, who played through an illness against the Mavericks, is listed as probable.

James, 35, has played in all but one game so far this season for L.A., which the Lakers lost.
