Injury Report: Hawks center Dewayne Dedmon is sidelined with a stress reaction in his leg until mid-January. The Lakers do not have any players on their injury report.

Who We Like: The Lakers have the perfect foe to end their losing streak, an Atlanta team that is only 3-17 on the road this season. Los Angeles is fully healthy and after head coach Luke Walton dispelled rumors that he has lost the locker room, a win or two need to happen to back up that claim.
