According to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com and KCAL, Kobe Bryant will miss his third straight game against the San Antonio Spurs with an injured shin. With the Lakers playing the Spurs two more times after tomorrow night’s game, the Spurs most likely won’t miss Kobe too much.
A silver lining to this is that this could be Kobe Bryant’s attempt to recoup some energy from his early season burn of minutes and also an opportunity to give his teammates a chance to shine as we have seen from Ramon Sessions and Steve Blake these past few games.
Update: Kobe Bryant has officially been ruled out for Wed. at San Antonio.
