Alex Caruso will not be available for the preseason game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday.

Caruso is dealing with a hip injury (hip flexor strain) he sustained in preseason opener on Friday.

Even though the injury is not serious, Caruso will sit out the game in order to fully recover.

Caruso is expected to be ready for the final two preseason games of the Lakers against the Phoenix Suns (December 16, 18).
