Kobe Bryant was unable to finish Wednesday night’s game in Denver because of a sore right shoulder.
Bryant, who had missed the previous two games because of the injury, started against Denver in his final game playing in the city.
He played almost 11 minutes in the first half, scoring five points on one-for-two shooting. He also had one assist and two rebounds.
The Lakers don’t play again until Friday, when they host the Atlanta Hawks.
