Clark will play with sore foot

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The Lakers' already depleted front line has another injury on its hands.

Earl Clark underwent tests on his sore right foot on Tuesday, keeping him out of shoot-around in advance of the Lakers' game against the Phoenix Suns. But the Lakers said the results were negative, and that Clark would play Tuesday night.

Clark has averaged 11.6 points and 8.8 rebounds in 16 games as a starter at power forward this season.

The Lakers are without Pau Gasol (torn plantar fascia) for the next 6-8 weeks, Jordan Hill (hip surgery) is out for the rest of the season and Dwight Howard (right shoulder) continues to play with a torn labrum that has already caused him to sit out six games.
