Before everyone gets concerned, he’ll play. He is Kobe.
Lakers BasketBlog: Kobe Bryant missed Sunday afternoon’s practice with a sore throat, according to Lakers spokesman John Black. Bryant, who averaged 28.3 points on 53 percent shooting against second-round opponent Houston in the regular season, is listed as day-to-day.
Black said that Bryant will be re-evaluated on Monday, and that last season’s MVP will attend shootaround should he feel better in the morning.
