As a result of soreness in his left knee, Taurean Prince, a crucial player for the Los Angeles Lakers, is anticipated to miss Sunday's game.

 TaureanPrince's condition is not recent but a persistent issue, affecting his performance and position.

 The Lakers will introduce a new lineup with Jarred Vanderbilt and Cam Reddish as potential alternatives.

Vanderbilt has shown signs of returning to his previous form, while Reddish, who joined the starting lineup before an injury, is highly likely to return soon.

It is more important for the Lakers to maintain continuity than to take into account other factors, and Prince's absence is only temporary.

 The Lakers will use a different starting lineup, ideally featuring the same players that led them to the Western Conference Finals.

When it comes to achieving a win-loss ratio of 0.500, the game that the Lakers play against the Trail Blazers is really essential.
