As if the last day and a half couldn't get much worse Ron Artest has now suffered injuries to his head and elbow by tripping and falling downstairs at his home. He will be missing tonight's road game against Tyreke Evans and the Kings and is out indefinitely after that. But when you look at the Lakers schedule, you see that until we play Orlando on Monday the eighteenth, we play a few strong teams including the Mavericks, Spurs, and Rockets, but no team that we probably couldn't handle without trying. If his injuries last even longer than that we unfortunately have to take on the Cavaliers and Celtics(who's star players consist of LeBron James and Paul Pierce, two great offensive players that Ron-Ron would normally have the responsibility of guarding : ( ) in addition to the Magic. Another thing is, without Ron-Ron, with Luke Walton out with a back injury, and with an incredibly weak-of-late bench, how should Phil Jackson alter the lineup?
How should Phil change the lineup around with Ron Artest and Luke Walton both unavailable?
