SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Kings guard Bobby Jackson sat out Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers with a strained muscle in his abdomen, missing his 26th game since the All-Star break.

Jackson, the NBA's top sixth man last season, missed 24 games before returning from the injured list Thursday. He scored 10 points in 13 minutes against Minnesota, but was forced to sit out Friday's game at Phoenix.
