Kobe Bryant Out Saturday Night vs. Phoenix Suns

According to Kevin Ding of the O.C. Register, Los Angeles guard Kobe Bryant will sit out Saturday night when the Lakers take on the Phoenix Suns, due to an injured shin.

With Kobe sitting out, reserve guard Devin Ebanks will start in his place.

Bryant has had trouble with his shin over the last few games, and was even limping at times during the Lakers’ loss to the Houston Rockets last night.

This is Bryant’s first missed game of the season.
