The Lakers will be without another player for their preseason game Saturday against the Utah Jazz. But unlike Dwight Howard (back rehab) and Jordan Hill (herniated disk), Steve Blake's absence has nothing to do with health.

Lakers Coach Mike Brown said he told Blake he plans to sit him so he can give increased minutes to Chris Duhon and Darius Morris.

"Really none of the backup spots are set," Brown said. "Guys are still fighting for the backup spots and fighting to make the team."
