Lakers' Kobe Bryant Misses Practice But Will Play Tomorrow Against Heat

Kobe Bryant is still recovering from the hard foul he took from Dwyane Wade in Sunday night's All-Star Game -- the Laker leader missed practice today to receive extra treatment on his neck. But as expected, Bryant does plan to be on the floor when Wade and the Miami Heat visit the Staples Center tomorrow, reports Mike Trudell of Lakers.com:

Bryant suffered a concussion and fractured nose in the collision with Wade six days ago. He played anyway in two games this week, wearing a protective face mask and dropping 31 and 38 points in wins over the Minnesota Timberwolves and Sacramento Kings, respectively.

Bryant has a remarkable track record of playing hurt -- and still playing well -- for the Lakers. He's started in 355 of the Lakers' last 364 games, dating back to opening night in 2007.

Bryant is the NBA's leading scorer with 28.8 points per game. He's led L.A. to to seven wins in nine games and a third-place tie with the L.A. Clippers in the West standings.
