Seems the Lakers have caught the injury bug,
After hearing about MWP's dislocated finger, and the (almost) scary injury Steve Nash avoided, Dave McMenamim of ESPN Los Angeles reports that Kobe Bryant did not participate in practice this afternoon:
Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant sat out of practice Monday with a strained right foot.
Bryant was kicked in the foot in the third quarter of Sunday's 99-92 preseason loss to the Sacramento Kings.
The foot is bruised and Bryant is listed as day to day, according to a team spokesman.
To think , Gary Vitti probably thought he was going to have lots of vacation days with an Andrew Bynum-less locker room, he guessed wrong.
The Lakers have two more pre-season games before the ring ceremony and commemorative pre-season banners are handed out. SO HURRY UP AND GET HEALTHY, WIN A GAME!
