Luol Deng (biceps) did not participate in Thursday’s shootaround and he is questionable against the Blazers.
Deng’s absence would make Thomas Robinson a late-round guy and Timofey Mozgov might also be worth a look if you’re desperate for a big. It would also ease some of the logjam in the backcourt as the Blazers run small and so can the Lakers.
Luol Deng did not do shootaround today. He said he feels better, but unclear if he plays tonight

Luol Deng is out tonight. Luke Walton said he hasn't decided who will start in his place. Metta will be on active roster
