The Lakers are hosting the Trail Blazers on Friday night in their first game since the death of Kobe Bryant.  As you might expect, players on both sides are still dealing with the loss.

One player who is still grieving the loss and is unable to play because of it, is Portland’s Carmelo Anthony.  He will not be playing on Friday night due to Kobe’s death.
