Kobe Bryant has missed the last week of practice with an injury, and sat out Monday while his teammates went through a lengthy workout ahead of Tuesday night's opener against Dallas.

Bryant might not be fine for a bit longer. The fifth-leading scorer in NBA history is resting his right foot, which was bruised and strained last week, and the Lakers won't decide whether he'll play against the Mavericks until game time.

Mavericks • Dallas is moving on without guard Delonte West, whom it waived Monday. The guard figured to be a valuable role player again before two suspensions in as many weeks for conduct detrimental to the team.
