After a forgettable 2014-15 NBA campaign, the Los Angeles Lakers will look to rebound in what may turn out to be Kobe Bryant’s last season. The storied franchise will take on the division rival Los Angeles Clippers on Christmas Day in a battle for Los Angeles and appear to be set to face off against the Minnesota Timberwolves in their season opener at the Staples Center.

According to Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times, the Lakers will likely get their 2015-16 NBA season underway against the Timberwolves:

As expected, the Lakers will start their season at home. The date of the team’s season opener against the Timberwolves wasn’t provided in Bresnahan’s tweet. The Lakers usually suit up on the first day games in the NBA are played, but that may change this time around.

The official full schedule for 2015-16 NBA season will be released for all teams on Wednesday. Although no other matchups for the Lakers have been released, Bresnahan did have this to say about the upcoming schedule:

As of right now, only three matchups have been leaked. Along with the Lakers being rumored to face the Clippers on Christmas Day and the Timberwolves in the season opener, Los Angeles is expected to host Jahlil Okafor’s Philadelphia 76ers on New Year’s Day.
