After Bryant missed Tuesday's practice, he said he probably won't play in the Lakers' preseason game against the Clippers on Wednesday night.
Bryant also missed Monday's practice after bruising and straining his right foot during the Lakers' loss to Sacramento on Sunday night, dropping them to 0-6.
Bryant missed one exhibition game earlier this month to rest a sore right shoulder.
Dwight Howard didn't participate in contact drills during Tuesday's practice while recovering from general soreness after his Lakers debut Sunday. Coach Mike Brown isn't sure whether Howard will play against the Clippers.
