The Lakers are struggling to win games which may lead Coach Mike Brown to tinker with his rotation.
The pecking order is clear at point guard with Steve Nash getting the bulk of the minutes, assuming he quickly gets over the lower-leg contustion that knocked him out of the game in Portland.
Steve Blake is the primary backup. Chris Duhon gets spot minutes. Darius Morris is a project.
At shooting guard, Kobe Bryant will get the lion share of minutes. Brown went with Jodie Meeks in the first game behind Bryant but relied more on Devin Ebanks the next night.
Rookie Darius Johnson-Odom made the team but won't get much opportunity to play.
Metta World Peace is the team's primary small forward. Brown's rotation with Antawn Jamison and Ebanks at the three isn't quite clear yet.
