The Los Angeles Lakers are looking to get back on track after losing to the Phoenix Suns on Sunday afternoon, this time they will be facing the Clippers like the road team for what could be their last contest this way as the Clippers will be playing in their new Arena next season.

For tonight's game, the Lakers will continue to be shorthanded with the absence of Christian Wood, Gabe Vincent, and Jarred Vanderbilt, but at least they will see the return to the court of Cam Reddish which is good news as they need all the defensive help they can get.

The LA Clippers will have also their fair share of players missing with Paul George and Ivica Zubac not being available, which is some good news for the purple and gold as things will go kind of balanced for the match.

With information from Lakers reporter Mike Trudell: "Darvin Ham confirmed that Cam Reddish is available tonight after missing the last several weeks with an ankle injury; he said they talked about balancing the rotation out with his expected minutes. We’ll see how his return impacts playing time for other subs."
