None of these players figure to see much action in the playoffs, if any at all. But in the event a starter or a role player goes down with an injury, it's possible these men could be called upon to step in.
Wafer, 25, is a good shooter who brings some energy off the bench and can get to the basket against slower defenders. Pavlovic, 27, and Bradley, 20, are both strong defensive players who are limited offensively. Bradley, in particular, has a chance to see some minutes against Kobe even though he's just a rookie.
Ebanks, 21, is a big, versatile forward who can knock down the three. He could be a good player one day (maybe in the Jeff Green mold), but as a rookie he still has a lot to learn. Character, 22, is roughly the same size as Ebanks but without any legitimate NBA skill. Neither rookie has played much this season.
The Celtics group of players wins out here because they provide specific skills that coach Doc Rivers could utilize at the appropriate time. The only way the Lakers duo of rookies sees the floor is if Ron Artest and Matt Barnes both collapse.
