Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Blake joined a growing list of injured teammates when an ultrasound Thursday confirmed a moderate strain of his right hamstring.
He's out indefinitely.
Also, Steve Nash and Jodie Meeks remain doubtful for Friday's game. Nash received two epidural injections in his back Thursday, as well as a cortisone shot in his right hip, while Meeks has an MRI scheduled for Thursday on his sprained left ankle.
With those players sidelined, Darius Morris looms as a likely starter for the Lakers. The 22-year-old has averaged 4.0 points and 1.6 assists this season.
The San Antonio Spurs lead the best-of-seven series 2-0, winning by scores of 91-79 and 102-91.
