Lakers Vs. Timberwolves: Luke Ridnour Out For Minnesota

The Los Angeles Lakers will look to run their record to 8-0 tonight as they host the Minnesota Timberwolves, now without the top two point guards on their depth chart. Starting point guard Luke Ridnour is out for at least a week with a strained left hamstring, per Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Minnesota is also without Jonny Flynn until late November as he recovers from offseason hip surgery. Sebastian Telfair will start in place of Ridnour at point guard tonight.

Here are the probable starting lineups tonight for both teams.


Point Guard: Sebastian Telfair

Shooting Guard: Wesley Johnson

Small Forward: Michael Beasley

Power Forward: Kevin Love

Center: Darko Milicic


Point Guard: Derek Fisher

Shooting Guard: Kobe Bryant

Small Forward: Ron Artest

Power Forward: Lamar Odom

Center: Pau Gasol

The usual suspects, Theo Ratliff (sore left knee) and Luke Walton (strained right hamstring) are listed as probable.
