Chris Duhon injury: Lakers PG out vs. 76ers

USA TODAY Sports

Back spasms will sideline the Lakers point guard Tuesday night, although the injury isn't thought to be serious.

Los Angeles Lakers point guard Chris Duhon will watch Tuesday's game against the 76ers from the sidelines as he deals with back spasms, Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reported on Tuesday.

Duhon is averaging 4.1 points and 3.7 assists in 22.8 minutes per game. He is shooting 42.7 percent from the field and 38.8 percent from three-point range.

According to the L.A. Times, Duhon has missed the last few days of practice with back spasms and the team ruled him out just a little before tip-off on Tuesday night.

Duhon had surgery to remove a herniated disc from his back about six years ago. He told the Times that his back hasn't flared up since. The Lakers' next game is on Friday against the Los Angeles Clippers and Duhon expects to feel better by then.

"If this was like a playoff game, I definitely would be playing," he said. "I'll probably just sit this one and definitely be ready by Friday."

Darius Morris is expected to get the minutes at point guard during the game when Steve Nash rests.
