Tonight, the LA Lakers will take on the Chicago Bulls. This marks the first time the Lakers will play against their former beloved power forward Pau Gasol. The Lakers and Bulls have completely opposite records, as the Lakers are rebuilding and the Bulls are trying to contend in the East. The Lakers will be without Ryan Kelly (torn hamstring), while Xavier Henry, Steve Nash & Julius Randle have also been ruled out for the season. For a more in depth summary of tonight's match up, check out the game preview: Lakers @ Bulls Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:

Los Angeles Lakers Chicago Bulls
PG Ronnie Price Derrick Rose
SG Kobe Bryant Jimmy Butler
SF Wesley Johnson Mike Dunleavy
PF Ed Davis Pau Gasol
C Jordan Hill
Joakim Noah
