Chris Duhon remains game-time decision vs. Philadelphia

After nursing back spasms for the past three days, Lakers reserve guard Chris Duhon still remains a game-time decision when the Lakers host the Philadelphia 76ers tonight at Staples Center.

Duhon originally suffered back spasms after his glute locked up during a play during the first part of Sunday’s practice. He sat out of the second half of that practice and all of Monday’s session. He’s worn an ice pack behind his back and has rehabbed performing core exercises.

Duhon, who has averaged 4.1 points on 42.7 percent shooting in 26 games, has mostly played the backup point guard spot while Steve Blake rehabs from a lower abdominal injury. Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni has paired second-year guard Darius Morris to accommodate his speed, 6’7″ frame and Steve Nash’s return.
