Lakers head coach Byron Scott said Saturday that Kobe Bryant will be questionable to play on Sunday following Bryant’s shoulder injury that kept him out of Friday’s win against Philadelphia.
“He said it felt better but we’ll see how it feels tomorrow,” Scott said. “From yesterday to today he said it felt a lot better. What that means, I don’t know yet.”
Scott added that he has not gotten any indication from Lakers head athletic trainer Gary Vitti that this is a longterm issue but rather another sign of the game taking its toll on Bryant.
“He hasn’t given me any concern that this is how it’s going to be the rest of the season,” Scott said. “I think this is one of those things that the wear and tear of playing for 20 years and the surgeries have taken a little bit of a toll on him.”
