Kobe Bryant suffered a sprained wrist in the first preseason game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers. The injury could keep Kobe Bryant out of the Lakers second and final preseason contest.
However, the good news for the Lakers and Kobe Bryant is that he should be ready to go once the regular season begins on Christmas Day. In fact, the superstar guard was able to practice on Wednesday.
“He went through the contact part of practice and then, eventually I just had him sit down,” said Mike Brown, the new coach of the Lakers. “I think he’s fine.”
If Kobe Bryant does miss action with his wrist injury, the Lakers would be in a world of trouble. They don’t have much depth at shooting guard. Last year, Shannon Brown was Kobe Bryant’s backup, but he signed with the Phoenix Suns as a free agent.
