Ivica Zubac said he anticipated having a larger role this season. "I did," Zubac said, "but some things change and I can’t control everything. The only thing I can do is work hard and hope that they’re going to call my name." Coach Luke Walton said Zubac entered the summer as the starting center, but the acquisition of Brook Lopez changed things and the Lakers have been using Julius Randle, Larry Nance and Kyle Kuzma at the five this season. The Lakers are expected to be sellers at the deadline, so maybe a trade opens things up.
