Courtside seats at Staples Center popular with celebrities were raised from $2,200 to $2,300 per game - a 4.5 percent increase, team officials said, and tickets in six lower level sections will increase from $220 to $230, also a 4.5 percent increase.
The team institued the nearly across-the board price hikes for the second straight year, with the average increase totaling nearly 5 percent.
The NBA-mandated $10 seats remained unchanged. The Lakers offer 500 of those seats, which is the league minimum.
Season-ticket holders renewed at a 97 percent rate last year, up 5 percent from the previous season.
