Kobe Bryant is likely to play for the Los Angeles Lakers on
Saturday night against the Sacramento Kings despite a bone spur in
his left foot.
The Lakers listed Bryant as probable on Friday.
The fifth-leading scorer in NBA history left the Bradley Center
using a crutch Thursday following Los Angeles’ 113-103 loss to
Milwaukee. Bryant has been bothered by the bone spur for several
games, and he got treatment on the injury in Sacramento on
Bryant’s injury apparently isn’t related to his sprained left
ankle, which occurred earlier in Atlanta.
Lakers guard Steve Nash is listed as questionable for Saturday’s
game with discomfort in his right hip and hamstrings. The two-time
MVP point guard got hurt Monday at Golden State.
