Lakers will start Lance Stephenson in place of a resting LeBron James on Wednesday
Los Angeles Lakers guard/forward Lance Stephenson will start on Wednesday versus the Utah Jazz.
With LeBron James getting the day off in the second half of a back-to-back, Stephenson gets his first start of the season. His presence in the starting five pushes Kyle Kuzma up to power forward on Wednesday.
Stephenson has averaged just 7.2 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 15.9 minutes per game this season.
