Lakers Vs. Spurs: Kobe Bryant Out For Third Straight Game

When Kobe Bryant sits out his third game in a row, you know the Lakers guard really has an injury that has to be treated. Bryant will not play in Wednesday's game against the San Antonio Spurs.

Kobe's injury is on that sore left shin, which apparently would just flare up everytime he does try to play while it's still in this condition.

The Lakers have had mixed results with Kobe out. They did edge out a win against a moribund New Orleans Hornets team on Monday, but that was after getting routed in Phoenix by the surging Suns by 20. Safe to say that the San Antonio is a much stiffer test than either of those two teams and they'll have their hands full trying to guard the effiicent San Antonio machine.

Kobe Bryant Injury: Bryant To Miss Second Straight Game With Injured Shin

According to a tweet from Mike Trudell, the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant will miss his second straight game with a shin injury as the Lakers travel to face the New Orleans Hornets.

Bryant missed last night's 125-105 loss to the Phoenix Suns as the Lakers couldn't take advantage of their dominant frontline of Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum combining for 53 points and 31 rebounds.

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.
