Australia fast bowler James Pattinson will miss the rest of the Ashes series against England after suffering a stress fracture of the lower back.

The 23-year-old complained of soreness in his hip and back at the end of the second Test at Lord's.

Cricket Australia confirmed Pattinson would miss the rest of the tour after a scan revealed the extent of the injury.

The tourists say they have no immediate plans to call up a replacement for Pattinson, which could mean a recall for Mitchell Starc.
