LOS ANGELES -- Lakers point guard D'Angelo Russell missed Friday's 116-107 loss to the San Antonio Spurs with a sore left knee.

Russell will take Saturday off from practice, and doctors will examine him before Sunday's game against the Bulls.

Lakers coach Luke Walton said Russell had been dealing with the injury since Thursday's practice. Walton pointed out that the team was keeping Russell out of the lineup as a precaution and that the Lakers didn't believe the injury would affect Russell too much moving forward.

A second-year standout from Ohio State, Russell leads the Lakers with 16.8 points and 4.7 assists per game.
