Lakers Vs. Suns: Probable Starting Lineups & Injury Report

When the Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns get together Sunday night at Staples Center, not only is the game a battle of the NBA's top two offensive teams, but it is also a game featuring relatively healthy teams. In the early going, both the Suns and Lakers have used the same starting lineup in each game. Sunday night looks to be more of the same, as both clubs figure to run out their regular lineups. Here is a look at the probable starters and injury report for both teams:

Suns

Point Guard: Steve Nash

Shooting Guard: Jason Richardson

Small Forward: Grant Hill

Power Forward: Hedo Turkoglu

Josh Childress is listed as probable with a fractured tip of his right index finger. Childress suffered the fracture on October 19, but hasn't missed a game because of the injury.

Lakers

Point Guard: Derek Fisher

Shooting Guard: Kobe Bryant

Small Forward: Ron Artest

Power Forward: Lamar Odom
