Lakers reserve point guard Chris Duhon will sit out the game Tuesday night against the Philadelphia 76ers at Staples Center.
After missing the past few days of practice with back spasms, Duhon was ruled out about an hour before tipoff after going through warmups on the court.
"I had surgery about six years ago, it's kind of coming back a little bit," said Duhon of his back pain. "It hasn't flared up since."
The injury isn't thought to be serious.
"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."
