Jackson absent again

Coach Phil Jackson remained at home tonight because of flu-like symptoms and will miss the Lakers’ exhibition finale against the Golden State Warriors. Brian Shaw, who made his coaching debut in Thursday’s victory over the Warriors in San Diego, will guide the team again. Also, the Lakers expect Kobe Bryant to play tonight. He didn’t play Thursday, resting his surgically-repaired right knee. Opening night is Tuesday at Staples Center.
