Rockets Vs. Lakers: Game Preview, TV Info And More

Kyle Lowry could return to the lineup for Houston, but with the way Goran Dragic's been playing - especially against L.A. - he might not be needed.

The Rockets are fighting to keep pace in the NBA's Western Conference playoff race, entering Friday night's game with the Pacific Division leading Lakers at seventh in the West, tied with the Denver Nuggets. Guard Kyle Lowry could possibly return to the Rockets lineup Friday night, having participated in drills during a Thursday workout. Lowry has missed the last 17 games with a bacterial infection.

In his absence, Goran Dragic has averaged a healthy 27.7 points (shooting 62.5 percent in his last three games). Dragic also had a stellar outing against the Lakers on March 20, posting 16 points and 13 assists in a win over L.A.
