Lakers’ Bryant has bone spur in left foot
MILWAUKEE — Kobe Bryant has a bone spur in his left foot.
Following Los Angeles’ 113-103 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday night, the Lakers revealed the injury. He left the arena using one crutch, but appeared to be walking without pain.
Bryant led the Lakers with 30 points, leaving him four points behind Wilt Chamberlain for fourth place on the NBA’s career list. Bryant played 36 1/2 minutes and didn’t show any signs of difficulty during the game.
“Inflamed on me. I’ll be all right,” Bryant told Yahoo Sports.
Bryant struggled from the field, going 6 of 17, but made 18 of 20 free throws.
The Lakers are eighth in the Western Conference, a half-game ahead of Utah for the final playoff spot.
