Lakers News: Byron Scott On Possible Lineup Changes

After falling to 2-11 after Sunday night’s loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, the Los Angeles Lakers are searching for answers to turn things around.

With the 15-0 Golden State Warriors next up, the Lakers will have to figure something out quickly or risk being blown out in Oakland.

Many have wondered about the Lakers rotation and when changes could be made and according to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News, head coach Byron Scott is planning on making some changes if the Lakers lack effort:

Exactly what those changes would be are up in the air, but there are a number of different possibilities with both the frontcourt and the backcourt.

Younger bigs such as Tarik Black and Larry Nance Jr. could begin to get more minutes. Nance had been part of the rotation, but failed to see the floor in the Lakers recent loss to the Blazers. Black has hardly seen the floor this season, but with the Lakers continually having rebounding issues, more minutes for him could make sense.

D’Angelo Russell has also seen an uptick in minutes the last couple of games and that could continue if he continues to play well. Rookie Anthony Brown was recently recalled from the D-Fenders and as one of the better defenders on the team, could make sense to see the floor.

No one knows what Scott has in store for the Lakers rotation, but something needs to change as what has been happening so far isn’t working.
