Walton sits again

PHOENIX — Luke Walton was listed as “out” for tonight’s game against the Suns. After sitting out Tuesday’s regular-season opener against the Rockets because of a strained right hamstring, he said he hoped to practice Wednesday or Thursday. It didn’t happen, and he was left off the active roster tonight, joining Andrew Bynum (right knee surgery). Theo Ratliff, who has tendinitis in his left knee, was listed as questionable to play.

Neither Walton nor Bynum traveled with the team.
