Pau Gasol Doubts Kobe Bryant Returns Opening Night

While most didn’t seem to be making much of Kobe Bryant’s injury that kept him out the remainder of the preseason, Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol has his doubts on whether or not the veteran guard will be able to suit up for Tuesday’s regular season opener, reports Dave McMenamin of

Gasol said Bryant’s injury isn’t a “joke.” He added that he couldn’t remember the last time the veteran had an injury that caused him to miss six days of practice.

Bryant’s foot injury prompted the Lakers to shut him down for the remainder of the team’s preseason. There were only two games left when the announcement was made, so it didn’t appear to be a big deal.

Limited information is available on Bryant’s injury or how long it will take him to recover, so it’s unclear if the star will be ready to go tomorrow night.
