Kobe has a bone spur in foot, insists that it "will be alright"

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Another day, another Laker down. In the loss to Milwaukee tonight, Kobe Bryant aggravates a bone spur in his foot. Number 24 leaves the arena on crutches, but assures reporters that he'll "be alright".

Trainer Gary Vitti is surely earning his paycheck this year. Just days after losing Metta World Peace for the remainder of the regular season, Kobe Bryant leaves the Bradley Center on crutches, having aggravated a bone spur in his left foot. From Dave McMenamin's tweet tonight:

Kevin Ding of the OC Register later followed up the report:

To complete the triumvirate, the mighty Woj tweeted:

In true Kobe fashion, this injury hadn't been reported up until tonight. It might not be a direct result of the bone spur, but Bryant noticeably lacked lift on many of his jumpers tonight, and sometimes missed the explosion he's had this season. At the moment, there's no news of whether or not the injury's severity or if it will require surgery.

Though it's alarming he left the arena with a crutch, short of a foot fracture, there's very little that could keep Kobe out of action Saturday night's roadie against the Kings. This is just pure speculation, but it would be shocking if he did not play perhaps the Lakers last ever game in Sacramento.

It's been a few days. We were all due for another injury, right?
