The Brooklyn Nets will have two-thirds of their big three on the floor to take on LeBron James in Los Angeles Thursday. After missing Tuesday’s comeback win against the Phoenix Suns due to lower back tightness, Kyrie Irving was upgraded to probable on Wednesday for Thursday’s game and has now been cleared to play at Staples Center.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot was originally questionable to play due to right knee soreness, but he will also be available against the Lakers.

Kevin Durant (hamstring) remains sidelined, as do Iman Shumpert (left hamstring strain) Nicolas Claxton (right knee tendinopathy) and Spencer Dinwiddie (ACL surery).

Like the Nets, the Lakers will be without one of their superstars. Los Angeles big man Anthony Davis has been sidelined by a calf strain for two to three weeks.

The Nets, who’ve won the first three games of their West Coast trip, tip off against the Lakers at 10 p.m.
