Tonight the Lakers will host a Washington Wizards team that has gone 6-4 in it's late 10 games. And even with that not-so-great recent record, they sit in 2nd place in the Eastern Conference. The Lakers sit in the exact opposite position in the Western Conference; 2nd to last. The Lakers will likely have Tarik Black for action as he played a few minutes in the Rockets game. However, they will be without Kobe Bryant (torn rotator cuff) & Nick Young (sprained ankle), as well as Steve Nash & Julius Randle who have been ruled out for the season. For a more in depth summary of tonight's game, check out the preview: Lakers vs Wizards Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:
