Kobe missing his 3rd game due to the shin injury
 
Kobe Bryant will not play Wednesday night in San Antonio, missing his third consecutive game because of an inflamed tendon sheath in his left shin.

Lakers coach Mike Brown huddled with athletic trainer Gary Vitti after practice in San Antonio about it. Bryant was at practice for medical treatment and Vitti reported further improvement in Bryant's condition, which made notable progress through Monday but declined to comment. Bryant had ice over his shin during practice but left without the protective boot he has been wearing.

Bryant's track record is that he will play in games if he is physically capable and he could play now if the situation mandated it but the issue is that the situation with his shin will likely recur if he does not rest until it is pain free. The Lakers don't want this to be an issue that crops back up with the playoffs coming up (the Lakers' first playoff game is expected to be April 29).

Lol......you beat me to saying the same thing :cheers:
I see it as a blessing as long as he heals and it no longer becomes an issue........he flat out had dead legs and needed some time off.

Wtf is up with mwp?

I'm starting to think he was sucking ass the last 2 years on purpose(prior to joining us, he was still an all star level player) so that teams would stop watching film on him and he can take them by surprise. Lol

What's up wit our twin towers? They're not shooting the ball well without Kobe. I wonder why. Might have something to do with the offense
