10:22 AM ET 03.17 | Kobe Bryant is doubtful for Sunday's game against Sacramento, the Lakers said, and it was only the first half of an unsettling injury report. Pau Gasol experienced soreness in his right foot while playing a two-on-two game at the team's training facility Saturday. He will see foot specialist Kenneth Jung on Sunday. The cause and extent of the soreness were unclear. Gasol had targeted Monday's game against Phoenix as a return date from a tear inside the bottom of the foot, though it looked less possible after Saturday's news. Other than Gasol's workout with three other players, the Lakers (35-32) did not practice Saturday. Neither Gasol nor Bryant were available for comment. The Lakers had anticipated Gasol's return, particularly Bryant.

Kobe already put his big boy pants on. Now Pau, it's your turn to put on your big boy pants. Put your orthopedic shoes on while you're at it...

Run Forrest run...

They need a supply of diapers.

Kobe takes his warrior's mentality too far and is risking further injury if he doesn't allow his ankle to heal. Pau on the other hand is too fragile, mentally and physically, to even wear big boy pants.

If a Kobyless Lakers team can't beat the Kings, well they might as well return their Big Boy Pants to KMart.

QUOTE(#13):

He'll play but he'll just hurt the team if he does. He has already seen how the Lakers play w/out him and they play together. Give them more time to play together and take your time to heal that ankle Kobe. Don't be too selfish and let them get some of the spotlight for once. This is the best time to truly trust your teammates.

They did play team ball better and won.
