Lakers New: Robert Sacre Will Start Tonight Place Of Jordan Hill

According to Lakers reporter Mike Trudell, second year center Robert Sacre will be in starting lineup tonight on the road against the Sacramento Kings.

D’Antoni believes that the Lakers have been wearing Hill out by playing him extended minutes with the starting unit. In placing Sacre in the lineup, D’Antoni hopes to rejuvenate Hill’s activity on the glass, while being able make use of Sacre’s defensive presence.

We’ve seen Sacre get some minutes in short stints over the last few games, and got some extended playing time in the Lakers loss to the Portland Trailblazers this past Sunday. In those minutes he was able to post a line of 12 points, seven rebounds, four assists, two steals, and three blocks.

While this  may seem like a very odd move from D’Antoni, it’s tough to question his decisions, as he’s done a very good job coaching this season given the health issues that this team has dealt with.

If anything, we do know that Sacre’s energy and defense can be useful in the starting lineup. Let’s see what happens tonight.

    Although I personally think MDA pulled the trigger a little to fast to put Sacre in a starting role with just 1 good game…however I congratulate sacre for his hard work and i Hope he plays hard and well tonight and for the rest of the season!

      Yeah i was shocked when i saw Sacre starting tonight.I hope he does well.

    • honestly

      the whole Linsanity thing happened after 1 good game off the bench against houston I think… Can’t question D’antoni… the man knows talent, he also gave raja bell, diaw, barbosa, earl clark, and etc extra minutes after 1 good game…
