[Introduction] According to the “Los Angeles Daily News” report on January 19, , in view of the team’s recent injuries, and on-court
The performance of the players, Scott said, he may adjust the starting lineup again.
When Jeremy Lin talked about this issue, he said that he would not be too worried about whether to start.
Tomorrow’s away game against the Suns, both Kobe and Price may be absent.
Due to the back-to-back relationship, the 36-year-old Kobe chose to rest again against the Jazz, and because of a right elbow injury, Ronnie Price did not play in this game.
This season, the Lakers’ schedule has gone nearly halfway, but the team’s record of 12 wins and 29 losses only ranks second to last in the Western Conference.
Before, Scott said that the team would reassess the team’s starting lineup after 15 to 20 games. When the reporter asked Scott whether he would adjust the starting lineup again,
“It’s probably going to be done,” Scott said.
The next question is, which position will Scott adjust?
In the Lakers’ starting lineup, Kobe’s starting position is definitely unshakable. When he chooses to truce, Ellington will top this position.
Of the 8 games that Ellington started this season, 7 of them were due to Kobe’s rest. In these 8 games, Ellington averaged 10.6 points per game and shot 41% from the field.
Because of Price’s injury, Jeremy Lin returned to the starting lineup. Although Price averaged only 5.5 points, 3.8 assists and 1.2 turnovers per game this season, and his shooting percentage was only 36.1%.
Positivity, Scott appreciates.
At the same time, Jeremy Lin averaged 10.6 points, 4.4 assists and 2.8 turnovers per game this season, shooting 43.5% from the field, but his recent personal performance is hard to impress Scott.
In the first game against the Jazz, Jeremy Lin made 3 of 10 shots and only scored 6 points and 3 assists.
However, Jeremy Lin was very calm about the question of whether he was a starter.
“For that problem, I’m not too worried.” Jeremy Lin said, “This kind of thinking may appear in one place or another, and I’m just an ordinary person. But I will continue to execute according to the plan for each game
, do what I should do, see how I should prepare and how to play well.”
In a previous starting adjustment, Scott replaced Ed Davis with Boozer, but now for the role positioning of Boozer, Davis, Hill and Black, Scott may revisit the
It seems that, apart from Kobe, the most stable starting position for the Lakers is the small forward. So far, Wesley Johnson has started 38 games. Scott said he likes Johnson’s defense, and Nick Young
Putting on the bench can increase the scoring ability of the team’s second team. Even if Johnson is absent due to injury, the Lakers let Kelly appear in the starting lineup.
Considering the current injuries of the Lakers and the status of the players, Scott may adjust the starting lineup again at any time.
