This report seems a bit far-fetched, but we report the news here and we don’t want to leave anything out.
ESPN L.A. is reporting that Lakers guard Kobe Bryant could miss the season opener with a foot injury.
Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown said Wednesday night that there is “question” Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will recover from a foot injury in time to play in next Tuesday night’s season opener against the Dallas Mavericks.
“I don’t know if he’ll be ready,” Brown said after the Lakers 97-91 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday.
Bryant’s injury is described as a strain, and Bryant himself feels that it’s improving daily.
Bryant in particular does not like to miss games, but the goal for this team is a championship and long-term health, so a few early season games missed won’t hurt anyone.
