Tonight the Lakers will host a Washington Wizards team that is still fighting for playoff position in the Eastern Conference. The Wizards may be without their starting center, Marcin Gortat, due to back spasms that he has been dealing with for over a week. The Lakers will be without Jordan Farmar, Jordan Hill, Kobe Bryant & possibly Chris Kaman. Nick Young is expected to make a return from a knee issue tonight, but Wesley Johnson will be sitting out with an illness. Kent Bazemore will get the start at SF in his absence. Strangely enough, Steve Nash might be available for tonight's game, after being labeled 'done for the season'.
