Bryant (Gastroenteritis) Misses Shootaround

Lakers guard Kobe Bryant missed Thursday morning’s shootaround ahead of Game 6 with gastroenteritis.

We’ll know more about his status for the contest this evening about 90 minutes before tip off when the team’s PR staff or head coach Mike Brown provides an update on his condition.

Bryant has a history of playing through injuries and ailments particularly in playoff games, but the team will refrain from speculating until seeing how he feels prior to the game.

Bryant is averaging 31.2 points per game in the series plus 5.8 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.4 steals on 43 percent shooting in 40 minutes per game.
