Kobe Bryant did some shooting Monday at the team’s training facility in El Segundo but is not expected to play Tuesday at Staples Center against San Antonio, according to an NBA official who was not authorized to speak publicly.
It would be the sixth game Bryant has missed because of a sore left shin. The Lakers are 4-1 in his absence.
After Tuesday’s game the Lakers have a quick two-game trip at Golden State Wednesday and at San Antonio on Friday.
