Lakers vs. Heat: Chris Bosh, Ray Allen will play vs. L.A.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Heat will have both Chris Both and Ray Allen available on Sunday against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Chris Bosh and Ray Allen will play on Sunday as their Miami Heat face the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Ethan J. Skolnick of the Palm Beach Post.

Bosh had missed the last two games -- a Friday win against the Los Angeles Clippers and a Wednesday victory against the Houston Rockets -- with a flu-like illness. Allen also missed the game on Friday with an illness that also hampered Heat guard Dwyane Wade, who was the only one of the three healthy enough to play.

Skolnick reports that Bosh will be in the starting lineup along with LeBron James, Udonis Haslem, Mario Chalmers and Wade. The forward's absence gave playing time to recently-signed big man Chris Andersen, who logged 18 minutes in the 111-89 victory against the Clippers and scored eight points to go with four rebounds.

Miami has won four games in a row leading into its home game against the Lakers. Meanwhile, Los Angeles has won seven of its past nine games despite the drama and injury.
