Report: Lakers announce brand new starting lineup for game against Pelicans


The extremely shorthanded Los Angeles Lakers are set to take the court against the New Orleans Pelicans, without LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

Their new starting lineup comes as a surprise as their regular starting center Marc Gasol is still unable to play due to his enrollment in the NBA’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

Devontae Cacok is on a two-way contract with the G League Lakers and South Bay Lakers. At 6ft 8in, he’s undersized in the pivot, but weighs 240 pounds.

He has shown some potential as a rebounder and someone who can use his physicality to his advantage.

After winning their first four games after the All-Star break, the Lakers have now lost back-to-back games.

With both of its superstars out for an unknown amount of time, the team could very well enter a prolonged slump and lose ground in the Western Conference standings unless several players step up offensively.
