Lakers' center suffered right big toe contusion, lost toenail on Thursday (PHT) vs. Bucks.

Lakers center Andre Drummond had an abbreviated debut on Thursday (PHT) against Milwaukee, and the right big toe contusion he suffered then will delay his second chance to impress the L.A. faithful.

The Lakers announced Thursday that Drummond wouldn’t travel with the team to Sacramento for Saturday's game against the Kings; L.A. return to Staples Center in away uniforms for Monday's matchup with the Clippers before heading out for a five-game East Coast trip.

The team additionally ruled swingman Wesley Matthews questionable for Friday.
