But a sore back will keep him out against the Magic tonight, too.
Mike Trudell of Lakers.com:
The Lakers’ upcoming schedule – four games in six days in four cities – is fairly grueling:
- Today: at Magic
- Friday: at Mavericks
- Sunday: vs. Pistons
- Monday: at Suns
There’s no great opportunity for Kobe to return without facing travel and another game shortly after.
It’s hard out there for an injury-riddled 37-year-old.
