KEY GAME INFORMATION
LA LAKERS: GUARDS: KOBE BRYANT is 35 and coming off a ruptured Achilles. Even if he is ready for the season opener (as expected), Achilles injuries have drained the athleticism out of younger men . . . STEVE NASH enters the year healthy, but the training staff has discussed a minutes cap for the 39-year-old point guard . . . NICK YOUNG could grab that other starting wing spot, opposite his boyhood idol. How those two gunners could co-exist is something we'd love to see . . . STEVE BLAKE looked good in this offense last season, but is strictly a back-up . . . JODIE MEEKS might shoot his way into a much bigger role this season . . . XAVIER HENRY will need to prove a lot to earn himself minutes . . . What are you complaining about, Lakers fans? You got JORDAN FARMAR back! FORWARDS: PAU GASOL should benefit from the departure of Dwight Howard, who never bought into head coach Mike D'Antoni's offense or even tried to mesh with Gasol. D'Antoni's up-tempo, Euro-style system is perfectly suited to Gasol's strengths. And when Nash sits, they can run a lot of sets through their big man . . . WESLEY JOHNSON will have a chance to grab the vacant small forward spot. The former No. 4 overall pick has been a big disappointment through three seasons, but he looked decent as a spot-up shooter last seasons . . . JORDAN HILL will be the first big man off the bench in a thin frontcourt rotation. He can rebound and clean up around the basket a bit . . . ELIAS HARRIS keeps the Gonzaga connection going . . . SHAWNE WILLIAMS has had success for D'Antoni, but he is far removed from his days contributing for the Knicks. CENTERS: CHRIS KAMAN is the consolation prize after Dwight Howard's departure. Yes, it's a monstrous downgrade talent-wise, but as a skilled 7-footer, Kaman at least fits D'Antoni's system better . . . ROBERT SACRE has a chance to develop into a useful back-up center.
ATLANTA: GUARDS: It was a rocky offseason for JEFF TEAGUE, who looked like a goner at one point. Instead, he'll be the focal point of Atlanta's offense . . . Coming off a torn ACL, resident gunner LOUIS WILLIAMS is a question mark entering the season, especially as a guy who relied so much on quickness and explosiveness. He may not be right again until 2014-15 . . . JOHN JENKINS was rock solid as a rookie and should see a bump in playing time with DeShawn Stevenson gone. Jenkins is a legit shooter who can hold his own defensively . . . Rookie DENNIS SCHRODER is a year or two away from consistent minutes, but the penniless man's Rajon Rondo comparisons aren't off . . . JARED CUNNINGHAM is a middling talent destined for a minor role. FORWARDS: PAUL MILLSAP was lost in the shuffle in Utah last year, but he'll be a significant part of this offense in Atlanta. He's a well-rounded power forward and may prove to be a better fit than Josh Smith was for the Hawks . . . KYLE KORVER is coming off a huge year and will play major minutes at both wing spots again . . . A shadow of his former self, ELTON BRAND will rotate in at power forward and center . . . This generation's junkyard dog, DEMARRE CARROLL gives Atlanta some defensive options on the wing and energy off the bench. Outside of some transition baskets, he's a non-factor on offense . . . Euro veteran PERO ANTIC is a finesse stretch four who provides frontcourt depth. CENTERS: After playing a lot of power forward alongside Zaza Pachulia last year, AL HORFORD will spend most of this season at center. With Josh Smith gone, he's poised to have his biggest offensive numbers ever . . . GUSTAVO AYON has proven capable of eating up some space on the second unit. He'll be the second big off the bench after Elton Brand.

*Lakers-Hawks Preview* ======================

By ELI KABERON STATS Writer

Los Angeles (11-12) at Atlanta (12-12), 7:30 p.m. EDT

Point guard or shooting guard, it doesn't really matter to Kobe Bryant. The Los Angeles Lakers star seems comfortable in either spot.

Bryant is trying to take on the roles of both scorer and ball distributor for the injury-plagued Lakers, who continue a four-game trip Monday against the Atlanta Hawks.

With point guards Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar all sidelined, coach Mike D'Antoni has tried to shift Bryant into more of a catalyst role - which may suit the veteran a bit better as he continues to work his way back from a torn Achilles.

"We have to somehow find some wins and gut it out. It's not pretty right now," D'Antoni said. "We don't have a playmaker and we've got to get guys healthy and get Kobe well."

Bryant has scored at least 20 points twice in four games since returning, but he also had 13 assists - two shy of his career high - in a loss at Oklahoma City on Friday.

He took only six shots and scored four points against the Thunder, and he's had a hard time getting into a groove with 25 turnovers since re-joining the lineup.

"There is no secret formula that you can sprinkle out there," D'Antoni said. "He'll get more comfortable, then the guys will get more comfortable around him and then he'll do a better job."

Bryant had the best game of his comeback with a balanced performance Saturday against Charlotte, helping the team to its first win since his return with 21 points, eight assists and seven rebounds in an 88-85 victory.

"I don't know what I can and can't do," he said. "I'm just trying to measure it."

Given their offensive struggles, the Lakers (11-12) would benefit from some improved play by Pau Gasol, who has averaged 18.3 points on 51.5 percent shooting in his 13-year career. This season, however, Gasol is averaging only 14.4 points and shooting a career-low 41.8 percent. He's expressed frustration playing within D'Antoni's up-tempo offense, and hasn't scored more than 20 in a game since Nov. 27.

The Hawks (12-12) will try to take advantage of a Lakers defense that is allowing 103.5 points per game this season - the second-most in the NBA.

Though Atlanta is scoring just 99.6 per game, the Hawks have options all over the floor. Big men Al Horford and Paul Milsap lead the team in scoring with 17.7 and 16.5 points per game, respectively. Point guard Jeff Teague is averaging 15.9 points and 7.7 assists, while Kyle Korver has made at least one 3-pointer in a record 93 straight games.

Reserve Lou Williams scored a season-high 27 points Saturday at New York, but the Hawks committed an NBA season-high 27 turnovers in a 111-106 loss. The Knicks scored 36 points off the miscues.

Atlanta has generally been much more careful with the basketball, averaging 15.3 turnovers this season. Teague has been an especially solid caretaker with a 2.33 assist-to-turnover ratio.

The Lakers have won 10 of their last 14 meetings with the Hawks, who have gotten each of their four wins in that span in Atlanta.
