LOS ANGELES » Kobe Bryant is expected to miss the NBA All-Star game due to continued pain and swelling in his injured left knee.

The Los Angeles Lakers provided an injury update today, saying the superstar guard will be out for at least three more weeks before he is re-examined. Bryant was voted a starter in the All-Star game in New Orleans on Feb. 16 -- less than three weeks away.

Lakers team physician Steve Lombardo examined Bryant after the team returned from a two-week road trip for today's home game against Indiana.

Bryant broke a bone in his knee Dec. 17, just six games into his comeback from a torn left Achilles tendon.

Bryant will continue with a program of light exercise, including time on a stationary bike.
