Neither player is dealing with an injury, so the move was likely made to get both players some extra rest. The team opted to rest veterans Chris Paul and Blake Griffin Tuesday.
Wall made 10 of his 16 shots from the field. He also hit two three-pointers, and made seven free throws. He also dished out seven assists in 33 minutes.
The club just wants Bryant to receive extra rest prior to the start of the regular season. The Lakers opener is Tuesday night.
It's assumed to be a normal day of rest for the veteran. He had been dealing with a groin injury, but that's no longer thought to be a major issue.
Lee is dealing with an ankle injury. Lee injured himself Monday, and will need more time to recover. He's expected to be ready for the start of the regular season.
Wiggins is dealing with a back injury, though it's considered minor. He was expected to miss Wednesday's game, so the news should not come as a surprise.
Calderon is dealing with a calf injury. The move is considered precautionary. The club doesn't want Calderon to aggravate the injury this close to the regular season. There's a chance he's held out of Friday's game for the same reason.
Rondo fractured his hand during the offseason, but is inching closer to a return. He's been able to take on some contact recently, but still hasn't been fully cleared yet. There's still a belief that Rondo could make it back in time for opening night.
The move is likely being made to give Ariza more rest prior to the start of the regular season. He and veteran Dwight Howard are both getting the night off.
