Coach Mike Brown seems to have his initial rotation set at shooting guard for the Lakers this season.
Kobe Bryant, naturally, is the starter. In the opener, Bryant played 35 minutes. While that will fluctuate, if that's the guide, the Lakers have 13 minutes open for subs.
Technically, Bryant can move up to small forward in a smaller lineup, but that's not something Brown has gone to just yet (preseason or post) for any significant time.
Jodie Meeks relieved Bryant for exactly 13 minutes in the team's loss to the Dallas Mavericks. Meeks scored three points on three attempts from behind the arc. Over the preseason Meeks struggled to hit shots within the paint but was strong from the outside.
