Pau Gasol will be returning to the starting lineup after sitting out the last two games. Nick Young will be replacing Wesley Johnson in the starting lineup tonight. Xavier Henry, Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Kobe Bryant are all out with injuries. The Bucks are horrible this year. They have won six games the entire season. If the Lakers don't win tonight at home, they might as well embrace the tank. For a more in depth summary of tonight's game, check out the preview: Milwaukee Bucks at Los Angeles Lakers Preview.
