KOBE BRYANT: The Los Angeles Lakers guard wasn’t happy about spending Christmas Day on the sideline, unable to help his struggling team.

It’s a place he’s unaccustomed to being on the holiday. Bryant leads the NBA with a record 15 appearances on Christmas Day, but he’s out an expected four to six weeks with a fracture in his left knee.

“It’s strange to be coming in on Christmas and not playing,” he said before the Lakers’ 101-95 loss to the Miami Heat on Wednesday. “It’s a foreign feeling, but I’m here to support my guys.”

The Lakers have dropped three straight.

Bryant’s injury was diagnosed last week, his second major one of the season. He didn’t play his first game until Dec. 8, nearly eight months away while recovering from a torn Achilles tendon.
