Tonight, the LA Lakers will host the Sacramento Kings in a home game before heading out on the road. The Kings will be without their on-court leader DeMarcus Cousins, who is still fighting viral meningitis. This may be one of the few winnable games that the Lakers have on their schedule for the rest of December. 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 Kings Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:

PG Ronnie Price Darren Collison
SG Kobe Bryant Ben McLemore
SF Wesley Johnson Rudy Gay
PF Ed Davis Jason Thompson
C Jordan Hill
