Introducing the Los Angeles Lakers' Skeleton Crew

Robert Sacre has some big shoes to fill.

All hands are officially on deck for the Los Angeles Lakers, but if we're honest, that doesn't mean very much right now.

With Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill joining Steve Blake on the sidelines, Los Angeles' personnel-challenged roster is now officially emaciated.

While this all but ensures Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and Metta World Peace will be playing basketball eight days a week, it also dictates that Mike D'Antoni's already inconsistent rotation become even more diluted.

Down three—arguably four—key players, D'Antoni and the remaining Lakers will be forced to rely upon the services of seldom-used players in an effort to try and preserve what has become an overwhelmingly afflictive campaign.

Robert Sacre, the 2012 NBA draft's Mr. Irrelevant himself, has been called upon to fill the shoes of Howard, Gasol and Hill.

But he's not the only one.

Who are these sparsely utilized talents and what do they bring to Hollywood's cause?

No need be down on yourself for not knowing the ins and outs of Los Angeles' skeleton crew. 

Because chances are the Lakers don't even know what to expect themselves.
