Foot injury causes Kobe to miss Friday practice

A right foot ailment forced Kobe Bryant to miss both of the Lakers Friday practices, even though the injury is not thought to be serious.

Bryant sat out the morning practice session and even though he was initially expected to return for the evening practice, he ended up sitting that out as well. Despite missing two practices, the injury is not considered to be serious and Bryant is listed as day-to-day.

Lakers coach Mike Brown didn't seem too focused on the injury, instead saying he leaves the medical decisions up to Lakers trainer Gary Vitti.

"My take on it is this: Gary has a job to do, he's our head trainer and I just follow his lead," Brown said, according to ESPN Los Angeles. "He knows a lot more than me when it comes to that stuff, so really, I'm OK not knowing what's going on. Just, 'Can a guy go or not?' If you can go, great. If he can't go, great."

While the injury doesn't appear to be of much concern now, it could draw more attention if it continues to cause Bryant to miss practice. Injuries have been a bit of an issue early on for Los Angeles as the Lakers already lost Steve Blake to a foot injury. Los Angeles is also working Dwight Howard back in as he continues to recover from a back injury.
