The Lakers head coach Mike D’Antoni revealed that the veteran guard, who started at forward in the 114-108 defeat to the Phoenix Suns Tuesday night, will start the game on OKC’s point guard Russell Westbrook, but will be his exclusively guard.
Bryant starts at the point for the injured Steve Blake, who is out for six weeks with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.
Meanwhile, for the NBA fantasy fans, Jordan Hill will start at the power forward position, with seemingly frustrated Pau Gasol at center.
In Oklahoma City Thunder team news and NBA fantasy note is, guard Thabo Sefolosha will not play tonight as he continues to recover from a sprained right knee.
The Thunder say Andre Roberson will start in his place.
