Lakers assistant Miles Simon to miss game with pneumonia

LOS ANGELES -- Lakers assistant coach Miles Simon has been diagnosed with pneumonia and will miss Saturday's preseason game against the Clippers.

Simon was taken out of the Staples Center locker room area on a stretcher after Thursday night's 128-123 win over the Sacramento Kings.

The team announced Simon will be considered day-to-day after Saturday's game.

Simon has played a key role in the development of the Lakers' young players and coached the team's summer league squad in July to the Las Vegas Summer League championship game.
