Luke Walton is considering starting rookie Kyle Kuzma or Luol Deng for the first two games of the season according to Bill Oram.
Other options include Josh Hart (Achilles) and Corey Brewer but after his impressive preseason, Kuzma seems like the favorite. The Lakers aren’t scheduled to tip-off their season until Thursday’s so Walton still has plenty of time to decide. Kuzma could be a potential late-round value guy whereas everyone else is practically worthless in fantasy play.
