It's his shoulder, they don't wanna risk it any further. He's still without a doubt the best player in his class. Lakers would be benching Lonzo too if they had a McConnell or Bayless to rely on.

This will also get Bayless' stock up for a deadline trade. Gonna get something good out of him.

Why did Lonzo Bust miss so much pre season?

Wrapped in cotton wool to avoid criticism before the real season starts?

Fultz goes to the bench early, earns his starting role back mid-season (and absolutely kills it)

I have been scouting this class for years now and I have never seen what the big deal with Markelle is. Is he a NBA player who will have a long career? Yes! But #1 pick? When was the last time we saw a #1 pick come off the bench to start the season Bennett? Bargnani?

Bafnani, Bennett, and Fultz. The only #1 picks to not start the season when healthy.
