Coach Byron Scott said Ronnie Price will start over Jeremy Lin Friday. 

With Lin's ankle still not at 100-percent, the Lakers are going to play it safe and give Price the opportunity to work as the starting point guard. Lin is still expected to be the starter, but with him banged up and Steve Nash down and out, Price is going to need the extra work.

Steve Nash will be ruled out for the entire 2014-15 NBA season with nerve issues.

This is sad news for a great player who will likely consider retirement after missing a majority of last season with the same issue. This gives an immediate boost to Jeremy Lin who will be the Lakers new starting point guard and garner a majority of the minutes.

Jeremy Lin will play Tuesday night.

Lin will enter the season as the back up point guard for the Lakers but given the injury history and age of Steve Nash those who draft Lin should expect him to play plenty of minutes each game. You can read more about Lin's 2014 projections in the Fantasy Alarm NBA Draft Guide.

Lakers have waived PG Keith Appling.

The rookie out of Michigan State was a longshot to make the Lakers opening day roster. Appling is going to have to play in the D-League or overseas if he's going to continue his professional basketball career.
