Walton Re-Strains Right Hamstring

Luke Walton aggravated the right hamstring strain he originally suffered at last Thursday’s practice, moving the classification from “mild” to “moderate.”

Walton will not play in the Lakers preseason games in London or Barcelona.

The backup forward will be re-evaluated when the team returns to Los Angeles on October 8, but team spokesman John Black said he would likely be out for a few weeks.
