Bryant was injured last Saturday in the Lakers' last game against the Hornets but was able to fend off the injury for four games afterwards. Head trainer Gary Vitti sat him down for Sunday's game and tonight's game as well.
Bryant is tops in the league in total minutes played and leads the NBA in scoring at 28.1 points per game. The Lakers are currently the no. 3 seed in the Western Conference with a 35-22 record.
