Tonight, the LA Lakers will take on the Chicago Bulls. This marks the first time Pau Gasol will play against the Lakers in LA since he was a member of the Memphis Grizzlies. The Lakers and Bulls have completely opposite records, as the Lakers are rebuilding and the Bulls are trying to contend in the East. The Lakers will be without Kobe Bryant (torn rotator cuff) & Nick Young (sprained ankle), while Steve Nash & Julius Randle have been ruled out for the season. For a more in depth summary of tonight's match up, check out the game preview: Lakers vs Bulls Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:

Los Angeles Lakers Chicago Bulls
PG Jordan Clarkson Derrick Rose
SG Wayne Ellington Jimmy Butler
SF Ryan Kelly Tony Snell
PF Jordan Hill Pau Gasol
C Robert Sacre
Joakim Noah
