Kobe Bryant Leaves Game Early With Sore Right Shoulder


Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant played just 11 minutes in Wednesday’s 117-107 loss to the Denver Nuggets before leaving with a sore right shoulder, the same injury that had sidelined him in the Lakers’ previous two games and has bothered him all season.

Bryant scored five points on 1-of-2 shooting from the field to go along with two rebounds and an assist in his final game against the Nuggets, but the shoulder remains an issue.
