Kobe Bryant sits out practice with sore ankle
Kobe Bryant has skipped practice with the Los Angeles Lakers to
rest his sore left ankle.
The Lakers will wait until game time Friday night to decide
whether Bryant will play against the Denver Nuggets.
Bryant received treatment on his ankle Thursday after
aggravating his injury during Wednesday night’s victory over
Charlotte when teammate Lamar Odom stepped on his foot. Bryant
originally sprained his ankle in Philadelphia last week.
Bryant scored a season-low five points on 2-for-12 shooting
against the Bobcats.
He has been bothered by injuries throughout the season, most
notably breaking a finger on his shooting hand, yet the NBA’s
fourth-leading scorer still hasn’t missed a game.
