Jordan is expected to start Tuesday's opener against the Warriors, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

While the Lakers have made it explicitly clear that Anthony Davis will play considerably more center this season, they'll already pivot away from that mandate on Opening Night. Haynes reports that coach Frank Vogel will go with a lineup of Jordan, Davis, LeBron James, Kent Bazemore and Russell Westbrook to combat the Warriors' lineup -- which also features a traditional center -- of Stephen Curry, Jordan Poole, Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green and Kevon Looney.
