Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant have both missed time this season due to injury, and now they're hurt again.

Bryant played the entire game on Thursday despite a bone spur in his foot which inflamed that morning, but had been bothering him for longer, according to a spokeman for the team.

He got treatment and is probable for Saturday night's game.

Nash left Milwaukee Bucks game in the third quarter because of back spasms, which started because of hamstring tightness in the game against the Golden State Warriors.

Gary Vitti didn't want the point guard to play on Thursday, but he insisted, and left the game in the third as a result.

However, it looks like he'll still play too.
