Kobe sick for Lakers' matchup vs. Indiana

According to his Facebook page, Kobe Bryant is "under the weather" hours before the Lakers host the Indiana Pacers.

According to his Facebook page, Kobe Bryant is "under the weather" hours before the Lakers host the Indiana Pacers.


"Laid up in bed," reads Bryant's page. "Drinking a lot of fluids. Trying to shake the aches and chills thru rest, medicine and a lil Bob Marley on the speakers."


Apparently Bryant is a Marley fan, which may be new information on the Lakers All-Star guard.


The Lakers, despite injuries and a coaching change, are 7-7 -- just one game behind the Pacific Division-leading Golden State Warriors and Clippers.


"Big game for us tonight," finishes Bryant.


It remains to be seen how capable he'll be against the Pacers. Historically, Bryant has played through injury and illness, often quite well.
