Shootaround Report: Without Kobe Lakers Take On Dwight And Rockets

Mike D'AntoniThe game that many Lakers fans have circled on their calendar is already here. The Los Angeles Lakers take on Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets tonight without Kobe Bryant. After starting smaller lineups in the Lakers first five games of the regular season, D’Antoni has decided to go big tonight, replacing Shawne Williams with Chris Kaman at the power forward position. Both Kaman and Pau Gasol have expressed their desire to play alongside each other in the starting line-up, and this will be the first time Chris Kaman has started a regular season game.

Plus, will Lakers head coach Mike D’Antoni use Hack-a-Dwight? And, with Steve Nash in the line-up tonight, will he play tomorrow on the second night of a back-to-back?
