Kobe Bryant out against Phoenix Suns

USA TODAY Sports

Kobe Bryant is now considered "day-to-day" after being ruled out in Monday night's game against the Phoenix Suns.

Kobe Bryant will not play in the Los Angeles Lakers' game against the Phoenix Suns Monday night, via Lakers reporter Mike Trudell.

Kobe was considered "doubtful" going into the game, but is now officially out. This will be the second-straight game that Kobe has missed after playing in the previous 67 games the Lakers have played this season.

Going forward, Kobe will be considered "day-to-day", though the Lakers are off until Friday when the Washington Wizards visit Staples Center. Bryant initially injured his foot last Wednesday in Atlanta, then attempted to play on the ankle Friday. It will be a full week since Kobe tried to play on the ankle when his status will be once again in the air.

Pau Gasol could also return to the starting lineup against the Wizards after missing six weeks of action after tearing the plantar fascia of his right foot.

Kobe did, however, travel to Phoenix with the team so he can continue receiving treatment on his ankle. Jodie Meeks will continue to start in Kobe's absence.
