Jordan will start Wednesday's contest against the Pacers, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports. This will mark the veteran center's third straight start as the Lakers continue to deal with injuries. Jordan has averaged 6.0 points and 10.0 rebounds per game in his past two outings as Los Angeles' starting big while playing 19.0 minutes per game.
Jordan is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pistons, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports. Jordan will re-enter the starting lineup for the first time since Nov. 10 as he takes the place of Talen Horton-Tucker. The 33-year-old has played just 12 combined minutes over the last five games and likely will only get around 15 minutes despite returning to the starting unit.
Jordan isn't starting Friday's game against Minnesota, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports. Jordan drew starts in each of the last four games and averaged 4.5 points and 6.3 rebounds in 14.0 minutes per contest during that time. Wayne Ellington will take his place in the starting five Friday.
Jordan is starting Thursday versus Oklahoma City, according to Jovan Buha of The Athletic. Because LeBron James (abdomen) is out, the Lakers are reverting to a traditional starting lineup featuring two big men. Jordan will play alongside Anthony Davis again. The former averaged 4.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks during Lakers games in which he was one of their starters.
Jordan will come off the bench for Sunday's game against Houston, Dan Woike of the LA Times reports. For the first time this season, the Lakers will go away from their super-sized frontcourt and roll out a smaller lineup featuring Avery Bradley and Russell Westbrook at the guard spots, with Kent Bazemore and LeBron James at forward. Anthony Davis will slide up to center to combat Houston's Christian Wood. Through his first six games, Jordan has averaged 4.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 13.5 minutes.
