Jackson out sick

SAN DIEGO — Phil Jackson came down with flu-like symptoms and won’t coach the team in tonight’s exhibition game against the Golden State Warriors, a Lakers spokesman said. Brian Shaw will handle the coaching duties in Jackson’s absence. It’s not known if he will be available to coach the team in its exhibition finale against the Warriors in Ontario. Jackson last missed a game April 9 in Portland because of swelling in his lower right leg.

Also, the Lakers waived free agents Trey Johnson and Andrew Naymick.
