Lakers Vs. Blazers: Probable Starting Lineups & Injury Report

The Los Angeles Lakers look to stay unbeaten tonight as they host the Portland Trail Blazers at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The Lakers have beaten the Blazers 14 of their last 17 games at Staples Center, although Portland won their last game in Los Angeles, a 91-88 win on April 11. Here is a look at the probable starting lineups and injury reports for both teams:

Blazers

Point Guard: Andre Miller (ranks seventh the NBA with 8.7 assists per game)

Shooting Guard: Brandon Roy (averaging 40.0 minutes this season, tied for seventh in the NBA)

Small Forward: Nicolas Batum

Power Forward: LaMarcus Aldridge

Center: Marcus Camby

Greg Oden (left knee), Joel Przybilla (right knee), and Elliot Williams (right knee) are all out for tonight. Center Fabricio Oberto retired suddenly on Thursday due to heart problems, and as a result Portland signed Sean Marks to help a depleted front line.

Lakers

Point Guard: Derek Fisher

Shooting Guard: Kobe Bryant

Small Forward: Ron Artest

Power Forward: Lamar Odom

Center: Pau Gasol

Backup big man Theo Ratliff (sore left knee) and forward Luke Walton (strained right hamstring) are listed as probable. Walton played six minutes Friday night against Toronto in his first game of the season. Rookie guard Devin Ebanks was inactive for that game.

Tonight's 6:30 p.m. PDT tipoff will be televised by Fox Sports West.
