ESPN: Kobe's injury ailing; Brown admits he overused Kobe

LOS ANGELES -- Kobe Bryant scored a game-high 40 points in the Los Angeles Lakers' 105-95 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday, but the scoring outburst might have come at a cost.

Bryant said he was playing on one leg and told reporters in the locker room after the game that he felt like his right foot was "about to fall off" during the game.

Bryant missed a week's worth of practice and the final two preseason games while he recovered from a right foot injury that Bryant characterized as an ankle contusion that also irritated the tendon that runs along the bottom of his foot.

The 17-year veteran asked a locker room attendant to have longtime Lakers trainer Gary Vitti to get his walking boot ready for him so he could wear it when he left the arena.

Compounding things was the fact that Bryant played a game-high 43 minutes. Lakers coach Mike Brown admitted to overusing the 34-year-old Bryant.

"We need a win, obviously. I'm not trying to fool anybody here. We do need a win. You hope we could have gotten one tonight," Brown said. "That's part of why (Bryant) played the minutes that he played, which was too many."


P.S.

Jodie Meeks aka Kobe's "primary back-up" got a DNP tonight... why???

Yes Mike we needed a win so badly that it was worth potentially injuring your star player even more, three games into the regular season

Guy is seriously stupid. Not just because he is trying to kill Kobe for one lousy RS win that was more than likely not going to happen anyway, but because he admitted to it

Wait. It's not Mike's fault. Kobe should have tried harder and stopped making excuses.

This is what happens when you have a coach that thinks his neck is on the line and could be out the door any minute. He's desperate right now....

No Princeton offense run vs. the Clips, playing the starters for an absurd amount of minutes, wacky rotations...

It just screams desperation mode and if the FO doesn't do something quick, he will have the starters gassed by Christmas. He's desperate right now for win and it's going to come at the expense of our older players. I mean he made Kobe leave the arena in a walking boot FFS, this guy is going to kill this team.

100% agree. Mike Brown knows his job is on the line and he's willing to do anything, including risking our entire season just to keep it.

:thezen:


Oh really Brown? Is that why you are literally trying to run the starters into the ground? Or why you continue to send out that atrocious 2 PG lineup that has proven TIME AND TIME AGAIN to be ineffective?! Or why you continue to play a crappy player like Morris over Meeks he can spread the floor and is infinitely more useful for the offense? Or why your just God awful rotations have the bench baffled and confused of who will play any given night? :bang:

This CLOWN is trying to do everything but win as is proof from his coaching decisions so far and is only "trying to fool" himself with the nonsense he's pulled this season.

SHIP HIM OUT BUSS!

Unlike a lot of fans, I'm hoping there's some method to Brown's approach that pans out eventually. Glass half-full? Sure. Does bringing a coach who's better on paper mid-season or now sound optimal? It's not the greatest thing that can happen to any team still trying to learn a system and gain chemistry. But MB's stock is falling fast - and it has a lot to do with the talent we have and the market we play in. He still has time though...being patient!
