Dwight injured, World Peace suspended vs. Brooklyn

Dwight HowardLos Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard and small forward Metta World Peace will both sit tonight's game out vs. the Brooklyn Nets. Howard is nursing a shoulder injury that's kept him in and out of the lineup for the past few weeks, while the inappropriately named World Peace has been suspended one game for grabbing Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight around the neck and striking him in the jaw.

Without Howard or World Peace, the Nets' chances of winning increase drastically against a Lakers team that is just 8-18 on the road this season. Los Angeles will likely re-insert Pau Gasol into the starting lineup. They may also move Earl Clark to small forward and start either Antawn Jamison or Robert Sacre.
