Kobe Bryant, said to be ill, misses All-Star media session

Lakers star Kobe Bryant was a no-show at Friday's All-Star media availability session in Orlando, Fla.

Members of the news media waited 45 minutes for the 14-time All-Star to arrive, then were told by a Lakers spokesperson that Bryant was ill.

No further explanation was provided.

Bryant arrived in Orlando late Thursday evening following the Lakers 100-85 loss to Oklahoma City, in which he had 24 points on seven-for-24 shooting, six rebounds and three assists.
