Kobe Bryant's sprained left ankle didn't feel strong enough for Bryant even to test it on the court Sunday before skipping the Lakers' game against Sacramento.
Bryant is considered doubtful to play Monday in Phoenix, according to a Lakers spokesman.

If Bryant doesn't play against the Suns, he will have three more days of rest and treatment before the Lakers play their next game Friday night against Washington.
Two days after that is the Lakers' only multigame trip left this regular season: at Golden State, Minnesota, Milwaukee and Sacramento.
Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni had expected Bryant to test the ankle in the hours before the game vs. the Kings on Sunday night, but Bryant opted to save the effort given the minimal chance he would actually play vs. Sacramento, which was shorthanded without leading scorer DeMarcus Cousins (quadriceps).
It was Bryant's first game of the season not playing. He played one quarter on the ankle in Indiana on Friday before telling Lakers coaches: "I can't go."
Jodie Meeks was the replacement starter at shooting guard in Bryant's place Sunday night, though D'Antoni said he has already learned not to count Bryant out too early.
"I didn't think he had any chance (Friday in Indiana), and he played," D'Antoni said.
