Dirk Nowitzki might not be the only future Hall of Famer missing opening night at the Staples Center.
ESPNLA.com reports that Lakers star Kobe Bryant is questionable for Tuesday night's opener against the Mavs due to a foot injury.
Bryant sat out Wednesday night's preseason game and has already been ruled out of Thursday's exhibition finale.
Bryant's injury is classified as a strain, and the team is officially saying he is out indefinitely. However, Bryant reported some improvement in his foot to team officials prior to Wednesday's shootaround.
