What you need to know about Kobe Bryant’s injury report

The Los Angeles Lakers have announced Kobe Bryant will miss their game against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night due to a right calf strain, but he’s expected to be fully fit in time for their next game.

Bryant, who missed three games earlier this month due to soreness in his calf, is expected to join the team in Houston on Thursday night for a night of practice.
