    Brian Kamenetzky

    Dave McMenamin has the news. Kobe Bryant participated fully in shootaround Tuesday morning, and unless his strained right foot acts up in the interim he'll suit up for tonight's season opener against Dallas. Very good news for the Lakers, both...

    Brian Kamenetzky

  3. Kobe Bryant will sit against San Antonio

    Brian Kamenetzky

    No real surprise, but Kobe Bryant will sit out tonight's game against the Spurs at Staples thanks to tenosynovitis (inflammation to you and me) in his left shin. It'll be his sixth straight game on the sidelines, and the second he's missed against Sa...

  4. Kobe Bryant to sit Wednesday in San Antonio

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Good. I wrote before Tuesday's game against New Orleans the Lakers Kobe Bryant ought to sit until the tenosynovitis (inflammation) in his left shin heals. Obviously not having Bryant in the lineup against a team as good as San Antonio does serious...

  8. Kobe Bryant diagnosed with a concussion

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Not to impugn the importance of ears, noses, and throats, for a handy trio they make, but brain trumps all three. So when Kobe Bryant was sent Tuesday from an ear, nose, and throat specialist to a neurologist for an MRI, it seemed a little worrisome....

  10. Kobe Bryant has a nasal fracture

    Brian Kamenetzky

  11. Blake out, McRoberts, Murphy, Kapono in vs. Cleveland

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Dave McMenamin has the news. Bottom line, the Lakers get some much needed help in the frontcourt behind Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. Gasol particularly piled up minutes in games against Phoenix and Utah without Josh McRoberts and Troy Murphy availa...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    With Andrew Bynum sitting the third game of a league-mandated four-game suspension and the franchise facing its first 0-3 start since disco ruled the world, the Lakers can't afford to go down another big heading into tonight's game against Utah. F...

  16. Matt Barnes: Knee feeling better, involved in Pro-Am altercation

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Those two things, by the way, are only tangentially related. It just so happens that on the very same Thursday we spoke to Matt Barnes for the podcast and ESPNLA On Air, he found himself in a scrap during a San Francisco Pro-Am game later that nig...
