Nemanja Bjelica is back in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Pelicans, joining De'Aaron Fox, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Harrison Barnes and Richaun Holmes.
Luke Walton went smaller with his lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks, moving Cory Joseph into the starting lineup and Bjelica to the bench. The two veterans are back in their usual roles for Thursday's matchup, with the decision likely being influenced by the need to match up with the physical tandem of Zion Williamson and Derrick Favors. Bjelica's fantasy value will receive a boost with this lineup switch. Aug 06 1:13 pm (EST)
