Kobe Bryant misses second consecutive practice

Lakers guard Kobe Bryant missed his second consecutive practice because of a bruised and sore right foot.

The Lakers are listing Bryant as day-to-day, making it unclear whether he will play in the team’s preseason game Wednesday against the Clippers. Bryant originally injured his foot during a collision in the third quarter of the Lakers’ 99-92 preseason loss Sunday to the Sacramento Kings.

The Lakers also limited center Dwight Howard in Tuesday’s practice out of “precautionary” measures regarding his surgically repaired back. Howard didn’t play in the team’s full-court scrimmage and half-court drills open to the media. Howard said after Monday’s practice that his entire body felt “pretty sore” after making his Laker debut Sunday against Sacramento.
