Kobe Bryant Could Miss Opener

 

Kobe Bryant is suffering from what is being referred to as a right foot strain’.  He’s been sitting out practice and getting treatment, but still remains questionable for the opener.

Fantasy Analysis – Owners with weekly roster settings face a tough decision on Kobe, especially head to head league owners in a short opening week.  If Kobe can’t go, Jodie Meeks could get the call.  Meeks can score and put up threes to help you, but he’s definitely no Kobe.

Dwight Howard should be a go and could benefit greatly with Kobe out.  The Lakers would likely look to feed the ball inside to Howard and Pau Gasol, with Steve Nash taking some extra scoring chances from outside.  Metta World Peace is also dealing with a hand injury and could be limited.
