Reports had Lamar Odom practicing with the starting unit at practice on Thursday. However, Kevin Ding from the Orange County Register reported that it looked like Shannon Brown would start at shooting guard, and Kobe would move to small forward.

Phil Jackson has said who will start will be a game time decision.
