Tonight, the Lakers take on a Warriors team that is looking to lock up a playoff spot for the second night in a row. The Warriors played last night at home against the Nuggets, with a chance to secure a playoff position, but lost on a last second field goal by Kenneth Faried. David Lee is likely to sit out again for the Warriors. The Lakers will look to stay healthy the rest of the way. Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Kent Bazemore & Xavier Henry are done for the season. Chris Kaman is still out with a calf strain, and Steve Nash is also likely done for the season after experiencing another setback the other night. So, the Lakers will have 9 players available for tonight's game. For a more in depth summary of tonight's game, check out the preview: Golden State Warriors at Los Angeles Lakers Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:

  • Bazemore and Brooks being with the Warriors earlier in the year.

  • The Warriors trying to lock up a playoff spot.

  • Nick Young "very confidant" he can be a Laker again next year.

  • Steve Nash experiencing another setback.
