The Los Angeles Lakers first game under the Magic Johnson-Rob Pelinka regime wont feature the teams full rotation. Two frontcourt players wont suit up when the Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers face off in their neutral-site matchup. Neither Julius Randle nor Andrew Bogut will play for the Lakers on Thursday. This information was sent to all 30 teams. Neither practiced Monday.

Back spasms forced Randle out of Los Angeles preseason finale last week, and he hasnt been participating in full practices since. The fourth-year forward is expected to resume his place in the Lakers starting lineup, but for now, it looks like Larry Nance Jr. will take that spot with preseason sensation Kyle Kuzma set to see more time as a result of this early announcement.

Randle averaged 13.2 points per game last season while grabbing 8.6 rebounds per night.
