Kobe Bryant is doubtful for Sunday's game against Sacramento, the Lakers said, and it was only the first half of an unsettling injury report. Pau Gasol experienced soreness in his right foot while playing a two-on-two game at the team's training facility Saturday. He will see foot specialist Kenneth Jung on Sunday. The cause and extent of the soreness were unclear. Gasol had targeted Monday's game against Phoenix as a return date from a tear inside the bottom of the foot, though it looked less possible after Saturday's news. Other than Gasol's workout with three other players, the Lakers (35-32) did not practice Saturday. Neither Gasol nor Bryant were available for comment. The Lakers had anticipated Gasol's return, particularly Bryant.
