As the Los Angels Lakers seek their fifth straight win today, in Orlando against the Magic on ABC, they will do so relatively injury free. Matt Barnes, who averaged 8.8 points and 5.5 rebounds in 81 games with the Magic last season, is still out for the Lakers, but the Lakers have had ample time to deal with his absence. Today will be the 17th straight game missed by Barnes, who underwent right knee surgery last month.
Here are today's probable starting lineups:
- Point Guard: Derek Fisher
- Shooting Guard: Kobe Bryant
- Small Forward: Ron Artest
- Power Forward: Pau Gasol
Center: Andrew Bynum
Point Guard: Jameer Nelson
Shooting Guard: Jason Richardson
Small Forward: Hedo Turkoglu
Power Forward: Ryan Anderson
Center: Dwight Howard
Brandon Bass, who has missed the last six games with a sprained left ankle, is listed as doubtful for today's game, and is day-to-day for Orlando.
