Bryant Out vs. Denver
For the fourth consecutive game, Kobe Bryant will not play due to tenosynovitis of the left shin.
Mike Brown relayed that information after Friday morning's shootaround, in advance of L.A.'s 7:30 p.m. matchup with the Denver Nuggets.
Bryant missed the team's loss at Phoenix and consecutive wins at New Orleans and San Antonio, the most recent game featuring Andrew Bynum's 30 rebounds in the win over the Spurs.
Bryant's status for Sunday's game against Dallas remains a question mark.
