The LA Lakers (5-15) host the New Orleans Pelicans (8-10) tonight at the Staples Center. Tip off is set for 6:30 pm PST.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight, the LA Lakers will host the New Orleans Pelicans as they return home after a three game eastern road trip, in which they won only 1 out of the 3 games, with a disappointing showing against the Celtics on Friday. The Pelicans continue to ride the incredible play of Anthony Davis, who is having an MVP type start to the beginning of the season. The Lakers will be making a change to the starting lineup with Price & Davis in and Lin & Boozer out. The Lakers will be without Ryan Kelly (torn hamstring), while Xavier Henry, Steve Nash & Julius Randle have all been ruled out for the season. For a more in depth summary of tonight's match up, check out the game preview: Lakers vs Pelicans Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:


Los Angeles Lakers New Orleans Pelicans
PG Ronnie Price Jrue Holiday
SG Kobe Bryant Tyreke Evans
SF Wesley Johnson Luke Babbitt
PF Ed Davis Anthony Davis
C Jordan Hill
Omer Asik
