Kobe Bryant practices, set to play Sunday


As noted when Kobe Bryant missed Friday's practices because of minor discomfort in his foot, the Lakers didn't consider the ailment particularly serious. But given the player in question (face of the franchise, 16 seasons and 220 playoff games under his belt, pretty decent at basketball), fans tend to get nervous whenever Bryant's linked to an injury report. Thus, even though it's just an exhibition game against Golden State, I imagine some comfort will be felt knowing Kobe will take the floor Sunday in Fresno.

As you were.
