The Lakers are still winless in the preseason, including a loss to the Jazz on Saturday, 99-86. Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 18 points in the loss as Marvin Williams and Enes Kanter paced the Jazz with 14 points apiece.
The Lakers are still fitting in some of the new pieces it added during the offseason and still have yet to play with the biggest addition of them all in center Dwight Howard. Howard is not expected to play on Tuesday either.
Howard is still recovering from back surgery, and though he continues to practice, the Lakers are being very cautious with how to bring him along. Dates for his return have been discussed within the organization but no dates have been released to the public.
