Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Sits Out Practice Due To Soreness

The Kobe Bryant watch continues with the return date for the five-time NBA champion still uncertain after he returned to practice last week. After participating in two practice sessions with the team, Bryant claimed to be feeling good and received a rave reviews from his teammates and coaches for looking like the player of old.

On Thursday, Bryant may have started to show some chinks in his armor with the perennial All-Star sitting out of practice due to soreness, according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters via Twitter:

With Bryant unable to participate in basketball activities for seven months, it comes as no surprise that the 35-year-old would feel some soreness after getting back on the practice floor with his teammates.

Although many will speculate that Bryant has suffered a setback, the Lakers are insisting the superstar shooting guard simply took the day off. It remains to be seen if this is truly the case, but as of right now, the team is sticking by the fact that Bryant needed a day off.
