Kobe Bryant out vs. Kings Sunday night, Gasol return pushed back
Kobe Bryant out Sunday night vs. the Kings, Pau Gasol to return Friday vs. Wizards.
It's a sign of the severity of the injury he suffered that it's kept him out more than a game. Bryant notoriously plays through any and all pain. But considering the Lakers are playing their best basketball, and with the Kings a much weaker team than the Pacers -- a team the Lakers handled on Friday -- it's acceptable for him to sit.
Meanwhile, Pau Gasol's return has been pushed back from Monday to Friday after a setback with his foot. That still gives the Lakers plenty of time to get the entire team back to full health before the playoffs begin in a month's time.
