As many of you probably know by now. Kobe will sit out the remainder of the preseason.
The Los Angeles Lakers will have to try to avoid the embarrassment of a winless preseason without the services of Kobe Bryant. Bryant is being held out of the Lakers' final two preseason games due to a sore right foot and will be evaluated over the weekend, according to a team spokesman.
Bryant's injury is classified as a strain, and he is out indefinitely. However, Bryant reported some improvement in his foot to team officials prior to Wednesday's shootaround.
"You'd love to have everybody for every single game, but that's part of the preseason and it's part of the regular season because it can happen during the regular season," Lakers coach Mike Brown said. "So we just have to go out and play with who's available."
I beieve the health of Kobe will be an issue this season. Like it has for the past couple of seasons. The Lakers rely on so much from Kobe, and through the years. He's about 38 in dog years in the NBA.
