LOS ANGELES (AP) - Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol are returning to the lineup for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Coach Mike D'Antoni says both will start against the Washington Wizards on Friday night at Staples Center.

Bryant has missed two games with a severely sprained left ankle. Gasol has been out since Feb. 5 with a right foot injury. They'll join Dwight Howard, Steve Nash and Metta World Peace in the lineup. When the big five have all started this season, the Lakers are 0-5.

The Lakers bring a seven-game home winning streak into the game against John Wall and the Wizards.
