Los Angeles — Los Angeles Lakers forward Luke Walton will be out at least through the All-Star break because of a sprained right ankle.
Walton was examined Monday by foot specialist Kenneth Jung at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedic Clinic.
A CAT scan and MRI confirmed Walton's ankle was sprained and he would miss at least the next two games, team spokesman John Black said.
The earliest Walton could return is Feb. 21 against Portland. By then, he would have missed 11 games.
