Luke Walton undecided on Lakers' starting power forward

Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton hasn't made up his mind on whether Julius Randle or Larry Nance will start at power forward this season, according to Lakers.com's Mike Trudell.

What It Means:

To this point in the preseason, Kyle Kuzma has been the most impressive forward in the Lakers' rotation, but it's unlikely that the rookie starts ahead of Randle or Nance. Off the bench on Tuesday, Randle churned out 13 points, four rebounds and five steals while Nance started and posted nine points, three boards and two assists. This battle could last for a while and hinder fantasy production for all three parties.

Our models expect Randle to see more minutes (2,181) than Nance (1,920), while out-producing him in points (905-606), rebounds (615-481) and fantasy points (2,145.5-1,731.2) in 2017-18.
