Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will miss a second straight game due to a back injury.
Bryant, 37, is having a career-worst season. He is shooting just 32% from the field, 13.1% worse than his career mark, and is averaging 2.6 more shots per game than any other Lakers player.
The Lakers are 1–6 this season and play their next game on the road against the Mavericks on Friday.
