Looks like Lakers will be without 2 starters tonight.

ESPN: Kobe Bryant did not participate in the team’s shootaround and spent the time undergoing “diagnostic tests” on his sprained left ankle, according to Lakers coach Phil Jackson. Andrew Bynum, who suffered a bruised right hip that caused him to sit out the second half of Los Angeles’ win in Portland on Saturday, is probably not going to play, according to Jackson.

“He had some discomfort and can’t move very well,” Jackson said. Bynum is also dealing with a swollen left knee that he injured last week against the Bobcats when he collided knee-to-knee with Charlotte’s Stephen Jackson.

  • kobe-wan kenobi

    drew will never be a healthy player
    he will always have problems, and we wont be able to rely on him

    mitch pull the trigger damn it!!!

      he just bumped his knee. its a sore knee, not broken nor ligament damage. stop making ignorant assumptions

      • kobe-wan kenobi

        question
        has kobe ever missed a game cause he bumped his knee?
        right
        bynum is fragile
        get over it
        nothing you can do about it
        lets get some player that is not injury prone

          BYNUM IS CLEARLY NOT KOBE (KOBES A WARRIOR). KOBE IS MORE IMPORTANT TO THIS TEAM. THE TEAM LIKE IN PORTLAND SAID IF YOU NEED TO REST WE GOT YOUR BACK. THEY ARE BOTH NOT PLAYING TONIGHT BECAUSE THEY WANT TO BE HEALTHY COME THE 16TH.

        • LEADERFISH

          No one knows the extent of the injury and certainly you don’t. If there is swelling in that knee you would be stupid to want him to play on it. Don’t be stupid.

  • Green Flannel

    WOAH! EVERY TIME IVE SLEPT WITH YOUR MOM THE LAKERS HAVE WON. HMM.. COINCIDENCE?

  • LakersBabe

    Sit Bynum for the rest of the week. I don;t think he is that hurt but he can’t handle the pain like Kobe.
