Kobe Bryant Injury Update: "Expect Jodie Meeks to Start"

What would a fantastic preseason from the Lakers be without another game without a starter? According to Mike Trudell, Laker fans should brace themselves for Jodie Meeks to start in place for Kobe Bryant.


At the very least, it gives Jodie Meeks another chance to gather playing time with the starters, which will help his role as the spot-up specialist to continue to develop.

Hey, at least Jordan Hill should make his return. Glass half full people!
