Kobe Bryant out against Magic

When Kobe Bryant missed last night’s Lakers-Heat game, I figured he’d play the other leg of the back-to-back.

But a sore back will keep him out against the Magic tonight, too.

The Lakers’ upcoming schedule – four games in six days in four cities – is fairly grueling:

  • Today: at Magic
  • Friday: at Mavericks
  • Sunday: vs. Pistons
  • Monday: at Suns

There’s no great opportunity for Kobe to return without facing travel and another game shortly after.

It’s hard out there for an injury-riddled 37-year-old.
