Lakers Vs. Kings: Probable Starting Lineups & Injury Report

The Los Angeles Lakers look for their third straight win tonight as they host the Sacramento Kings at Staples Center. They have beaten Sacramento eight straight times, and have won six consecutive against the Kings in Los Angeles. Kobe Bryant is just 13 points from passing Hakeem Olaujwon for eighth place on the all-time scoring list. Here's a look at tonight's probable starting lineups and injury reports:

Kings (10-33)

  • Point Guard: Tyreke Evans
  • Shooting Guard: Beno Udrih
  • Small Forward: Omri Casspi
  • Power Forward: Jason Thompson
  • Center: DeMarcus Cousins

Francisco Garcia, who has missed five straight games with a strained left calf, is out for tonight's game.

Lakers (33-13)

  • Point Guard: Derek Fisher
  • Shooting Guard: Kobe Bryant
  • Small Forward: Ron Artest
  • Power Forward: Pau Gasol
  • Center: Andrew Bynum

Andrew Bynum is listed as probable with the hyperextended right elbow and ulnar nerve contusion in his right arm, but he has averaged 18 points and nine rebounds in the two games since suffering the injury against Dallas last week.
