- Lakers will be without Dwight Howard for tonight’s game in Brooklyn against the Nets due to his continued ailing shoulder. This will be the Lakers’ 3rd straight game without their star big man and 6th game Dwight has missed all season. The Lakers are 2-3 in games without Dwight this season, but they have won their last 2.
- Brooklyn was rumored to be Dwight’s preferred destination, but the Nets were unable to put together an attractive trade package to intice the Orlando Magic.
- The Lakers will also be without Metta World Peace for tonight’s game, who was suspended for 1 game due to the altercation with Brandon Knight in Sunday’s victory over the Detroit Pistons.
