Injury report: Kobe practices, McRoberts doubtful

1/9/2012

Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant continues to play -- and succeed -- despite a torn lunotriquetral ligament in his right wrist. The superstar guard took part in a full practice on Monday in El Segundo, with no problems reported, and remains on track to play in Tuesday’s game against the Phoenix Suns.

In the meantime, Bryant was named the Western Conference’s Player of the Week after posting averages of 33 points and 6.3 assists during a 3-1 week for the Lakers.

Unfortunately for the Lakers, the news on Josh McRoberts isn’t as promising. The reserve forward continues to deal with a sprained big left toe and was termed as “doubtful” by a team source for the Suns game.

McRoberts has missed four games due to the injury, which initially took place after a collision with Sacramento Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins in the second game of the season.
