Kwame could be out 2 weeks..
Power forward Kwame Brown, who suffered a strained right hamstring Friday night during the 97-91 loss to the Clippers, will be sidelined for up to two weeks.
Coach Phil Jackson said the break may actually benefit Brown, who has been ineffective and lacking in confidence.
"He needs to take the pressure off him so he can come back and play the game the way we anticipate he can play," Jackson said.
For tonight's game against the Chicago Bulls, Brown's replacement probably will be Brian Cook or, if the Lakers decide to go small, Devean George.
George and Chris Mihm, both nursing sore ankles, were held out of Saturday's practice.
