Kobe Bryant has a torn lunotriquetral ligament in his right wrist, the Los Angeles Lakers announced Wednesday. Bryant will not play in the Lakers' second and final preseason game on Wednesday against the L.A. Clippers, and his status is listed as day-to-day. The Lakers are set to tip off the regular season at home on Sunday against the Chicago Bulls. L.A. has games on Monday and Tuesday, as well.
Bryant has played through injury during much of the past few years, and had a mysterious treatment on his aching knee in Germany during the offseason. It's unclear whether the Lakers expect Kobe to miss any regular season games; surgery doesn't appear to be on the table, and the team hasn't specified exactly how severe the tear is believed to be.
Bryant fell hard on his wrist during Monday's game against the Clippers after having a layup rejected by DeAndre Jordan.
