The Lakers are still a little ways off from receiving some reinforcements. Steve Nash could return next week, and then Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar shortly after that. Xavier Henry is still a few weeks out, and Kobe Bryant is not expected to try and make a comeback until after the All-Star break. Tonight the Lakers take on a Charlotte team that is playing without their starting point guard, Kemba Walker. However, his backup Ramon Sessions is capable of starting for several teams in the NBA. For a more in depth summary of tonight's game, check out the preview: Charlotte Bobcats at Los Angeles Lakers Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:
