The Morning After: Smart still figuring out the lineups

TORONTO - Keith Smart continues to try out different lineups in what has become training camp during the season.

Injuries have affected Smart's plans, too. But in the Kings' 98-91 win over the Toronto Raptors, Smart used only nine of his available players. Travis Outlaw was the only player not to play.

Donte' Greene appears to have found more of a role under Smart and Francisco Garcia is playing a bigger role.

Smart described the situation as "unfortunate" because he has to use games to figure out which lineups work instead of practice.

Teams usually have the day off after back-to-back games but Smart will get the team together this afternoon in Houston because he's only had one practice since taking over the team last Thursday.

If Marcus Thornton can work today, that would help Smart figure out his rotations, too.

Thornton has missed the first two games of the five-game road trip because of a left thigh contusion.
