EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson will be out for at least one week with a strained left calf muscle.

The Lakers announced the rookie's diagnosis Friday.

Clarkson was hurt during the second quarter of the Lakers' preseason game against the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night.

The Lakers drafted Clarkson in the second round last June. He played two seasons at Tulsa before finishing his college career with one season at Missouri.

He is hoping to catch on as a point guard with the Lakers behind Steve Nash and Jeremy Lin.
