Tonight, the LA Lakers will take on the Denver Nuggets. Luckily, this isn't on the tail end of a back to back. Both teams played on Friday, with the Lakers losing to the Mavs and the Nuggets beating the Pelicans. The Nuggets have looked woeful to start the season, but have seemed to turned things around in the last few games. The Lakers will be without Ryan Kelly (torn hamstring), while Steve Nash & Julius Randle have both been ruled out for the season. For a more in depth summary of tonight's match up, check out the game preview: Lakers vs Nuggets Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:
