Bryant unlikely to play vs. Celtics

By ESPNLosAngeles.com

Kobe Bryant said he will likely miss the Los Angeles Lakers' game against the Boston Celtics on Thursday because of his sprained left ankle.

"As of right now, no," Bryant said of his playing status for Thursday's game. Bryant said he also has strained muscles in his left leg.

The Lakers have won their last four games, all without Bryant.
