ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Kobe Bryant was held out of the Lakers' preseason game Thursday night because of residual swelling in his right knee following a collision with teammate Josh Powell on Tuesday night against Charlotte.

"I've got a little bit of puffiness in the back of the knee. It's just from the trauma of landing the way I landed," Bryant said about an hour before his teammates faced Charlotte again. "So we'll just knock that out and make sure the swelling's out of there, which should be soon. Then I'm OK. After seeing the injury on TV, I'm surprised it's not worse, to be honest."

Bryant, the NBA's reigning MVP, was injured under the Lakers' basket in the second quarter when he went for a rebound and banged knees with Powell.

People seriously need to stop acting like Kobe's some sort of superhero immune to injury... "He's Kobe Bryant" is just a fanboy excuse, and is no justification for why he would risk aggravating his knee further.

kobe bryant is a smart tough guy who, thus far has been great with playing through pain/injury. I beleive he can accurately gauge the risk reward
Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers

Last year, Kobe pulls his groin against the Warriors late in the 3rd and we were winning. IIRC, he opted to stay in, and was involved in two turnovers which led to two straight 3 pointers and shifted the momentum in the Warriors favor. We ended up losing that game by 2 or 3 points.

I remember that game because my friends are all Warriors fans and they were rubbing it in..and my excuse was that we only lost cause Bryant got injured and still decided to stay in the game.

Why dun you throw in the back injury during playoffs against Jazz?

In any case, we meant that Kobe can gauge his own limitations better, for the good or for the worse. And he showed up today for the fans at the new arena. Played 6min similar to all star game and pulled out.

I didn't say he was a horrible judge, just pointing out that he isn't perfect. Kobe has tons of pride and determination, and that can easily cause him to misjudge his limits. He's usually good at gauging his abilities, but sometimes it just doesn't work out.
