EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Kobe Bryant sat out both of the Los Angeles Lakers' practices on Friday with soreness in his right foot.

Bryant practiced on the Lakers' first four days of training camp, but skipped the morning session Friday. The Lakers expected him to practice in the evening session, but the superstar was held out after further evaluation.

The fifth-leading scorer in NBA history is beginning his 17th season with the Lakers. He is a five-time NBA champion and a 14-time All-Star.

The Lakers will practice at their training complex Saturday before travelling to Fresno, Calif., for their preseason opener Sunday against Golden State.

New centre Dwight Howard won't play in Fresno while recovering from off-season back surgery, but is participating in nearly every part of Los Angeles' camp practices.
