The Lakers added to their roster over the past week, inviting free agents Shawne Williams and Xavier Henry to training camp . Though terms were not released, neither is expected to have a full guarantee and will have to earn a spot on the team's 15-man roster (although the Lakers could decide to carry just 13 or 14 players). The Lakers were also linked in reports to 35-year-old forward Pete Mickeal and veteran point guard Sebastian Telfair . A player the Lakers once pursued in trade, Michael Beasley , was waived by the Phoenix Suns.

This will actually be the fifth time these two teams meet after three preseason battles (all to the Kings) and the recent Sacramento visit (and loss) to Los Angeles on Nov. 11. While the Lakers won the most recent matchup, 103-90, the Kings were without both DeMarcus Cousins and rookie Thomas Robinson.  The meeting in Sacramento will be a real challenge for the Lakers, even if the Kings haven't impressed much this season.

The Lakers have climbed to eighth place in the Western Conference with a 5-5 record. Despite their 1-4 start, the team is only one win behind predictions for Weeks 1 , 2 and 3 .

The following is a breakdown of the Lakers' Week 4 schedule (through Sunday)
