Kobe Bryant to Miss Second Straight Game With Shin Injury

by April 09, 2012

After suiting up for 138 consecutive games, Kobe Bryant will miss his second in a row tonight, as the Lakers travel to New Orleans. Bryant is nursing a sore and inflamed left shin: “Kobe Bryant (shin) will miss his 2nd straight game tonight at New Orleans. Not a surprise that Kobe will miss tonight’s game; if it hurt him enough to miss 1 game, wasn’t minor enough to return in 2 days. Bright side to Kobe missing this game is that he’ll now have (at least) 5 days rest to his legs that were 3rd in NBA in minutes.”
