Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel recently indicated that the team has an interesting plan in place for when Anthony Davis returns from injury.

It sounds like L.A. will use Davis and James as its two primary centers.

Some Lakers fans feel that this should have been the plan before the season started. Those folks will likely be excited over this development.

There’s no doubt that something needs to change, as the Lakers simply haven’t looked like legitimate title contenders so far this season. The hope is that will change in the near future.

Currently, L.A. holds an 18-19 record, which is just the seventh-best mark in the Western Conference. The Lakers just finished an underwhelming month of December in which they went 6-8.

One of the biggest red flags of the Lakers’ season so far has to do with the fact that the team has struggled against quality opponents. L.A. is just 4-10 against teams that are .500 or better, which obviously isn’t going to get the job done in the playoffs.

The Lakers’ remaining schedule is pretty tough, so they’re going to have to flip a switch if they want to start racking up some wins. L.A. is hoping to avoid falling into the play-in for the second straight season.

Time will tell if the Lakers can turn their season around. Right now, the team’s focus is on the Minnesota Timberwolves, as those two squads will clash on Sunday in L.A. Minnesota is 16-19 on the season and has lost two straight games.
