On Thursday night, the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers will collide. A look at how to watch it online.
On Thursday, the San Antonio Spurs will finish a three-game road trip. It will be against the Los Angeles Lakers, taking place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA. Previous games were against the Portland Trail Blazers and Sacramento Kings.
The Spurs, like most games, won’t have a handful of their roster. Kawhi Leonard (left shoulder strain), Danny Green (tightness, left groin), Tony Parker (sprained right ankle) and Rudy Gay (right heel bursitis) all won’t play. It leaves a gap in the rotation, with players like Kyle Anderson, Bryn Forbes, Dejounte Murray and Davis Bertans needed to step up.
UPDATE: Danny Green and Tony Parker will not play tonight. Kawhi & Rudy remain out. https://t.co/YiVBJSGDxN

Bertans received his opportunity on Monday night, when the Spurs faced the Kings. He delivered 28 points on 11-for-15 shooting, propelling the team to a second-half comeback win. If head coach Gregg Popovich remains confident in the Latvian forward’s play, then look for him to receive heavy minutes in Los Angeles.
As for the starting lineup, with the injuries, except Murray, Forbes and Anderson to accompany LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol. This has been the case for the majority of the team’s injuries to its starting point guard, shooting guard and small forward.
