Anyone in Oklahoma City who paid inflated secondary-market prices for tonight’s game between the Thunder and Lakers is in for a disappointment. The team announced that Kobe Bryant will be held out with a sore shoulder. Via ESPN.com’s Baxter Holmes:
Fortunately, this won’t be the last opportunity for fans in Oklahoma City to see Kobe. The Lakers come to town again on April 11. Provided he’s healthy, it will be the last road game of Bryant’s career.
