LA sits Vujacic because of 'run-in' with coaches

ATLANTA (AP) — Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson says backup guard Sasha Vujacic (VOO-yah-chich) hasn't played the last two games because of "a little run-in" with the coaching staff.

Jackson says the incident happened during last Friday's game at Oklahoma City. He says Vujacic didn't play at all in the next two contests at Houston and New Orleans because he "hasn't atoned himself for that error."

Jackson refused Friday to give any more details about the incident. Vujacic says he doesn't know what his coach is talking about.

The Lakers are wrapping up a five-game road trip at Atlanta.
