Currently eighth in the West and a game and a half over the ninth-place Jazz, the Lakers host the Washington Wizards on Friday.
Coach Mike D'Antoni confirmed
Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol will be
back in the lineup Friday. With both returning, it will mark just the second game of the season that D'Antoni will have his entire roster intact, with the exception of Jordan Hill, who is out after undergoing hip surgery in January.
