In LA Lakers news tonight, it looks the focal point of a litany of LA Lakers trade talks the past several weeks will be in the Lakers' starting lineup tonight against the Boston Celtics.
Mike Trudell, beat reporter for Lakers.com, tweeted out tonight's starting lineup earlier today, which includes the return of 4-time NBA All-Star Pau Gasol from injury--
Starters tonight: Marshall, Meeks, Johnson, Kelly and Gasol. Young and Henry are still out but thought to be close to returning.

Pau Gasol was sidelined for seven games after aggravating a groin injury in a 110-100 home loss to the Charlotte Bobcats on January 31st.
The LA Lakers went 2-5 in Pau Gasol's absence, including a demoralizing 134-108 home loss on Wednesday to the Dwight Howard-led Houston Rockets.
Having Gasol roaming the paint once again could pay immediate dividends defensively for an LA Lakers squad that is ranked second-to-last this season with 106.2 points allowed per game.
