LA LAKERS: GUARDS: Coach Mike Brown will reportedly turn the offensive gameplan over to STEVE NASH, but it's tough to picture a smooth transition after so many years of iso-heavy play in L.A. Don't be surprised if Nash has a tough adjustment . . . KOBE BRYANT will also have to learn to play with the ball out of his hands more often. He still figures to force some hold-and-wait basketball when he can . . . STEVE BLAKE will be in the old Derek Fisher role, coming off the bench to shoot corner threes . . . CHRIS DUHON and DARIUS MORRIS will battle for that No. 3 point guard spot . . . JODIE MEEKS will back up Bryant and provide some long-range shooting off the bench . . . The young guys, ANDREW GOUDELOCK and second-rounder DARIUS JOHNSON-ODOM, will bounce between the bench and the D-League. FORWARDS: If L.A. redesigns their offense to fit Nash, PAU GASOL should thrive. He's adjusted his game to fit with Kobe's iso play, but Gasol can make the passes and cuts to create quick buckets in a Euro-style offense . . . METTA WORLD PEACE looked done early last season but rebounded for a solid second half. He's a distant fifth option on offense, but can still defend . . . ANTAWN JAMISON will likely fill a sixth-man role. His skill set is too narrow to play a lot of minutes with the starters . . . JORDAN HILL is in the rotation. He did a nice job rebounding and clearing out space last year . . . DEVIN EBANKS figures to be bumped out of the rotation by Jamison. CENTERS: DWIGHT HOWARD's back remains a bit of a concern, and it wouldn't be a shock to see him sit out a handful of regular season games. But when he plays, he'll put up the same kind of monster production that he had in Orlando . . . ROBERT SACRE will be lucky to make the roster.
SACRAMENTO: GUARDS: MARCUS THORNTON is the only one guaranteed a consistent role on the perimeter . . . ISAIAH THOMAS was the story of the second half for the Kings. He can fill up the box score, but at 5-foot-9 (at best) he's too much of a defensive liability and not a point guard . . . AARON BROOKS is the most talented guard on this team. He's had attitude problems in the past, but he could, and should, lead this team . . . Now that he remained in Sacto, TYREKE EVANS will be playing off the ball at the three against his wishes . . . The Kings will keep on trying to unload JOHN SALMONS, who's not a useful NBA player . . . JIMMER FREDETTE should have a role off the bench, but his ball-handling is not where it has to be for an NBA point guard . . . FRANCISCO GARCIA's chance seems to have passed him by. FORWARDS: THOMAS ROBINSON should emerge as a starter early in his rookie year. He has his flaws on both ends of the floor, but he brings energy and doesn't need a lot of touches to get his points . . . Even if Robinson knocks him to the bench, JASON THOMPSON should play the five at times and see close to starter's minutes . . . JAMES JOHNSON should also play big minutes soon considering his ability to make positive contributions without a lot of touches . . . CHUCK HAYES should continue to play second-unit minutes as a glue guy . . . TRAVIS OUTLAW has regressed to the point that he's lucky to have a roster spot . . . TYLER HONEYCUTT has an intriguing skill set as a defensive-minded point forward, but he's likely ticketed for the D-League again. CENTERS: DeMARCUS COUSINS came on strong late last season. There's no doubt he has All-Star potential, but between his awful shot selection and occasional attitude problems, he just hasn't lived up to his potential. After Team USA passed on him this summer because of reported maturity problems, he might still not get it.

(UPDATES with Bryant probable)

*Lakers-Kings Preview* ======================


Los Angeles (37-36) at Sacramento (27-46), 10:00 p.m. EDT

It wasn't long ago when the Los Angeles Lakers had finally found their groove and appeared to be coasting into the playoffs.

Their latest rash of injuries may have put those postseason hopes in jeopardy.

The Lakers know they won't have Metta World Peace available following regular season-ending knee surgery, but having Kobe Bryant on Saturday night against the Sacramento Kings will surely cushion the blow.

Following a 113-103 loss at Milwaukee on Thursday, the Lakers revealed Bryant has been dealing with a bone spur in his left foot. Bryant, third in the NBA in scoring at 27.2 per game, finished with 30 points despite 6-of-17 shooting against the Bucks, but he left the arena using one crutch.

"Inflamed on me. I'll be all right," Bryant told Yahoo Sports.

The Lakers (37-36) listed Bryant as probable despite the injury. He's been bothered by the bone spur for several games, and he got treatment on the injury Friday.

Los Angeles went 2-1 with Bryant sidelined almost three full games because of a sprained ankle earlier this month.

Bryant's latest injury came a day after the team announced World Peace would miss at least six weeks due to a torn meniscus in his left knee. Jodie Meeks has started the last two games in his place, shooting 6 of 19 from the field.

Steve Nash is listed as questionable with discomfort in his right hip and hamstrings after he sat out the fourth quarter Thursday. Pau Gasol has played four games after missing 20 with a foot injury but is averaging just 10.0 points since returning.

The Lakers have lost four of five overall - following an 11-3 stretch - and can't afford to continue their slide with Dallas and Utah fighting them for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

"We need to win every single game that we have left," Dwight Howard said. "... If we want to do anything in the playoffs, we will need to come together as a team and win some games."

Howard enters this contest having recorded 12 straight double-doubles, averaging 19.0 points and 15.2 rebounds. However, he's totaled 12 points and 13 boards in his last two visits to Sacramento.

Los Angeles has lost three straight there, including a 113-97 defeat Nov. 21 despite Bryant's 38 points. He's averaged 33.2 in his past six matchups with the Kings.

His absence didn't hurt the Lakers in the last meeting, winning 113-102 on March 17 as Antawn Jamison made five 3-pointers and scored a game-high 27.

DeMarcus Cousins sat out that night with a quad injury - he missed Sacramento's other loss in the season series due to a suspension - but enters this matchup coming off possibly his best performance of the season.

Cousins scored 17 in a row in the first half and finished with a season-high 34 on 12-of-16 shooting Thursday in a 117-103 victory at Phoenix. He also grabbed 14 rebounds to help Sacramento win for the sixth time in 10 games.

"He has the whole package," coach Keith Smart said. "When everything comes along in his life, when he grows up and sells into how he plays every night in the NBA, he'll be a special talent."

Cousins battled foul trouble and finished with seven points in the November victory over the Lakers.

Isaiah Thomas led the way with 26 points against Los Angeles earlier this month. He's averaged 26.3 on 60.5 percent shooting - including 14 for 23 from 3-point range - in his last three games overall.

The Kings have scored 110.3 per game - 10.3 above their season average - over their last 16. They could maintain that pace against a Los Angeles defense allowing an average of 113.0 points on a four-game road trip which ends Saturday.
