Lakers Vs. Clippers Shootaround Report: Starting Line-Up Set

Mike D’Antoni wasn’t ready to confirm his starting line-up yesterday, although Shawne Williams hinted that he’d be starting tonight. At Lakers shootaround this morning, the Lakers tweeted tonight’s starting line-up which, as expected, included Williams starting at the four. Chris Kaman did not play in the Lakers final two preseason games after returning from China with a stomach issue and unable to practice.

According to Bill Oram of the OC Register, expect the bench to see plenty of minutes. With Kobe Bryant out of the line-up and Steve Nash battling a neck issue, D’Antoni is still experimenting with the most effective combinations.

With all the talk about whether or not Nash will be sitting out during back to back games this season, Nash cleared the air at this morning’s shootaround. According to Mark Spears of Yahoo Sports, Nash is wiling to participate in all games this season.

Of course, if Nash isn’t healthy resting him in back to backs still isn’t out of the question. The Lakers take on the Los Angeles Clippers tonight at Staples Center. Without their superstar, an ailing Nash and a recovering Chris Kaman, it’ll be a tall order.
