Mandatory Credit: Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY SportsThe Los Angeles Lakers are struggling to get wins, so coach Mike D’Antoni is looking to make a change.

Thursday night the team plays the Houston Rockets and the coach is looking to go bigger with his starting lineup. He’ll be taking out Shawne Williams in favor of either Chris Kaman or Jordan Hill.

Hill has the highest shooting percentage on the team at 70 percent, with Kaman second highest at 61 percent. Hill also averages nearly as many rebounds as Kaman in slightly less minutes.

However, Hill has a bone bruise in his right knee which could also affect the decision.
