Kobe Bryant Out Saturday Night vs. Phoenix Suns

According to Kevin Ding of the O.C. Register, Los Angeles guard Kobe Bryant will sit out Saturday night when the Lakers take on the Phoenix Suns, due to an injured shin.

With Kobe sitting out, reserve guard Devin Ebanks will start in his place.

Bryant has had trouble with his shin over the last few games, and was even limping at times during the Lakers’ loss to the Houston Rockets last night.

This is Bryant’s first missed game of the season.

    Its upsetting that Kobe is out, but I can’t wait to see what Ebanks can TRULY bring to the table. I’ve been wanting to see more of his game for a long time, and I don’t think its fair that he hasn’t been given the chance.

     They said he could play SG backup also. But yes, he’s mainly built for a SF.

      The thing that pisses me off, is how Kupchak wouldn’t give Greald Green a look! Ebanks playing SG but Mitch said Green couldn’t? SMH

     Mike Brown is an idiot. Ebanks goes from not playing to starting at the 2?This is a weird sub and MB is a weird coach.

    Lakers this season is 30th in terms bench scoring. That’s why they lost to Rockets, and Suns in the past two games, and that’s why they lost to Grizzlies last week at home, and Thunder last week at Staples, and Jazz last month in Staples as well. All because of bench production. Bench production is the reason why Lakers will have a hard time in the post-season. I sure hope they can claim this season’s championship ring, though they’re gonna have to go through some serious fucking sandstorm to get to it. Phew! Remember 2008-2009 when Kobe, Pau, Ariza, and Fisher would dominate all games, routing opponents, and they can rest because here comes Odom, Vujacic, Farmar, Shannon Brown. Remember 2009-2010 playoffs when they had the same second unit but with Ron Artest on the starting lineup? They massacred the Orlando Magic in the NBA Finals, because of the bench. This season, Kobe will miss shots, will take tough shots, will get himself injured because he can’t carry this team all game long, all season long. Pau and Drew have been major problems for opponents, but when these three starts to hit the bench for rest, the Lakers’ bench just cannot compete with the opponents and lets slip the big lead built by the starters, thus making the starters go back into the floor again and do it all over again. See, its because of the bench production of the Lakers that makes them lose games, in fact, even lose must-win games. I remember the times when Lakers would demoralize Jazz, Thunder, Suns, Pistons, Sixers, Wizards, Nets, Grizzlies, Rockets and pretty much almost every team in the NBA, all winning 30-point, 40-point leads. But now, they just can’t do it. Maybe even with Phil Jackson coaching, they can’t do it. 30th in the NBA in terms of bench production, my god, that is unbelievable for the Lakers.

    My god, the Lakers trade Fisher for Jordan Hill, and when they faced the Thunder, Fisher provided the much-needed spark for the Thunder to pull off a win from Staples Center. Gosh, they can’t win with Fisher on the lineup, but Fisher makes Thunder win? Wow. Maybe the problem was never with Fisher being old and all, maybe it was really with their bench. BENCH!
