Kobe Bryant Injury Will Keep Him Out Against the Trail Blazers

A left leg contusion could sideline Bryant for the remainder of the pre-season.

Mark Medina, LA Daily News beat writer covering the Los Angeles Lakers, has tweeted that Lakers star Kobe Bryant will miss tomorrow night's game against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Bryant suffered a left leg contusion in an exhibition game versus the Sacramento Kings last Tuesday. Medina tweets that the injury may keep him sidelined for the remainder of the pre-season.

Injuries have limited the 37-year-old Bryant to just 41 regular season games in the last two years combined.

The Blazers take on the Lakers at Staples Center Monday evening at 7:30 pm Pacific.

Update: Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, the Lakers tweet out this on their official feed...

That said, when it comes to stars in pre-season "questionable" likely means "out".
