Kobe Bryant Injury Update: Lakers Shooting Guard Out Against Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets (32-26) take on the Los Angeles Lakers (37-22) Friday night, and the Lakers will reportedly be without their superstar point guard. According to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com, shooting guard Kobe Bryant will miss his fourth straight game as he deals with a shin injury:

Bryant has played 56 games in the 2011-12 NBA Season and currently sports a league-leading 28.2 points per game rate. The 15-year veteran leads the Lakers in minutes per game, shots per game, three-pointers per game, steals per game and points per game. With Bryant on the bench, the team will likely lean more heavily on G Steve Blake.
