Wesley Matthews is in the starting lineup of the Los Angeles Lakers for the game against the Miami Heat.

Matthews will replace Dennis Schroder, who is out due to the Health and Safety protocols of the NBA.

As Schroder is expected to miss at least the next three games, Matthews will have more playing time on the floor.

Kyle Kuzma will also be in the starting lineup, replacing Anthony Davis, who is out with calf strain.
