Kobe isn’t panicing about all the injuries. Here is what he had to say…
L.A. Times: Bryant was asked if he was concerned about his team’s injuries.
“No,” Bryant said. “It’s part of the business. I won’t allow my guys to even think about that or have the attitude. Pull up your boots, get ready to play.”
Bryant said he was “pretty sure” that he would play Wednesday night against the Mavericks.
He said he knew he faced a difficult flight from San Antonio to Dallas Tuesday night.
“It doesn’t make it easier,” Bryant said, trying to smile. “I’m not going to drive my [butt] to Dallas, that’s for sure.”
The Lakers have lost four consecutive road games, three by double-digits They have lost three of their last four games Dallas won’t be any easier.
“This is just a period in the season right now where it’s a tough stretch,” Bryant said. “But you have those every once in a while.”
