Lakers News: Shawne Williams Will Start In Season Opener

After a 4-4 preseason record, the Los Angeles Lakers host the Clippers in their season opener on Tuesday. With numerous players battling for the starting power forward and shooting guard positions during the preseason, it was unclear who would start on Tuesday.

According to OC Register’s Bill Oram, a decision has been made by Mike D’Antoni today. To no one’s surprise, Shawne Williams will be in the starting lineup alongside of Pau Gasol, instead of Chris Kaman.

Since Kaman has been out for eight days dealing with a stomach illness, it makes sense for Williams to start in his place. While he didn’t shoot particularly well during the preseason, Williams showed the ability to be a serviceable stretch-four and defender in D’Antoni’s offense. He averaged 6.8 points and 4.4 rebounds while shooting 33 percent from three-point land.

It’s unclear at this time whether Williams will remain the team’s starting power forward when Kaman is healthy. Regardless of what happens, Williams will be a key role player for the Lakers this season as they look to exceed low expectations.
