Time: 3:00 PM PST

Quote:
Frank Vogel says that Russell Westbrook and LeBron James will not play Wednesday in Phoenix. He says that Anthony Davis and Carmelo Anthony will play. And he will give either Dwight Howard or DeAndre Jordan the day off. And Trevor Ariza (right ankle) remains out.

Damn, was hoping to see Russ and/or Bron in this one for at least a small stint in the first to see what any starting lineup looks like with an actual playmaker. Then again they probably see the first 9 games of the regular season and outside of 1-2 it's basically an extended pre-season. I'm a bit surprised Russ is sitting 2 in a row out while AD plays both though.

I'm guessing they'll probably each play a bit in the next 2-3 after this one and then the majority of the vets sit the final pre-season game.

Another game to see which guard brings it at the 1, 2, 3 or 4 spot.

Let's see who steps up this time.

Excited to see Carmelo Anthony play, I thought there was a chance he was coming in 2013 when he was a FA glad he gets the chance to compete for a title as a Laker.

What is he waiting for with Westbrook. I could understand sitting Lebron out but Westbrook needs to play. I'd rather sit AD out over Westbrook.

I bet Westbrook is chomping at the bit. But the preseason is no longer about getting the main guys ready for the season. The Lakers use the regular season to do that. Kind of annoying, but that has been the trend in recent years.

With the Phoenix Mercury-Las Vegas Aces playoff game set to tip off four hours after the Suns-L.A. Lakers preseason game, the NBA guys will play on the WNBA court, which is identical save for a closer 3-point line. The NBA 3-point line is marked on the court in blue.

I didn't really watch the 1st preseason game. I'll start so I can gauge our pickups. I hope they play some starters other than AD's 11 minute last outing. When are we going to see the big 3?

I'm also befuddled concerning Westbrook.

I guess AD’s thing this season is to show us that his ankle/achilles still bothers him…

We get it lol. Everything is a potential ticking time bomb. Just play.

I like Melo when he does post, bully ball because he isn't friendly when he does it. He doesn't care to bang you up.
