San Antonio Spurs star Tim Duncan is ruled out of Los Angeles Lakers clash on Friday night.

San Antonio Spurs star Tim Duncan will not play in Friday night's game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich confirmed the news, according to ESPN, after the veteran suffered a chest contusion against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night.

Duncan underwent a CT scan that revealed he did not have a fracture, but there is no timetable on when he will return.

San Antonio will look to make it two consecutive wins to start the season when they travel to the Staples Center.
