Kobe Bryant has a bone spur in his left foot and is scheduled to be examined by a foot specialist Friday in Sacramento.

Bryant finished the Lakers' loss to Milwaukee on Thursday night but didn't talk to reporters postgame as he got treatment on the foot. Lakers spokesman John Black said the bone spur has bothered Bryant "for awhile" but didn't specify how long.

Bryant is unlikely to sit out the game Saturday against the Kings, but the foot pain is something that he'll have to navigate the rest of the season and perhaps address after the season.

Bryant, who has played four games since missing two with a severe left ankle sprain, took his shoe off while on the bench in the fourth quarter Thursday night and put various wraps around his left foot in search of relief. Once he returned to play the last half of the fourth quarter, he was limping at times and other times moving his foot around trying to loosen it up.
