“I don’t put pressure on myself,” Black said. “It happened. It is what it is. I can’t take it back. No point of worrying about it. I got to heal up, get better and get out there. My biggest thing is helping the team win.”Black will nurse crutches to alleviate the pressure on his right ankle and prevent it from swelling. Black also downplayed the pain level. And he also expressed optimism in the Lakers’ training staff.“It just hurt bad when it happened,” Black said. “But as far as the injury goes, I’ll be back soon. It’s just a matter of keeping the swelling down.”This absence will likely open up time for back-up center Robert Sacre, who has not played in the past five games partly because of Black’s emergence. “I just stay positive, keep working on my game,” said Sacre, who has averaged 3.7 points and 2.7 rebounds in 14 minutes through 36 games. “You never know when it might be your time.” NEW ORLEANS >> Within a day’s span, the plan for Kobe Bryant already changed.The Lakers (12-30) listed Bryant’s status to play in Wednesday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans (20-21) at Smoothie King Center as questionable after missing Tuesday’s practice at U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix. Bryant originally planned to squeeze in a light shooting session Tuesday. Instead, he met the team at a Phoenix airport before flying to New Orleans on Wednesday. Bryant has missed eight of the past 15 games, including Tuesday’s 115-110 loss, to the Suns to preserve his 36-year-old body.The Lakers’ fluid roster goes beyond Bryant’s playing status. The Lakers have ruled reserve rookie center Tarik Black out against New Orleans after spraining his right ankle against Phoenix. X-rays turned out negative, though it is currently unclear if Black will play in Friday’s game in San Antonio.The Lakers also consider veteran guard Ronnie Price doubtful to play against the Pelicans after missing the past two games because of right elbow soreness. Price, however, completed a partial practice that entailed minimizing use of his right arm.Forward Carlos Boozer missed Tuesday’s practice because of a left triceps contusion, but he is listed as probable to play against New Orleans.Staying positiveBlack’s injury sours a promising start in which he has averaged 7.7 points on 66.7-percent shooting and 5.3 rebounds in 18.3 minutes through seven games. The Lakers picked up Black off waivers last month after the Houston Rockets parted ways with him to make room for Josh Smith. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
