Kobe will be game-time decision tonight against the Orlando Magic:
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — The Los Angeles Lakers received a scare Saturday night in Dallas, when Kobe Bryant landed awkwardly on his left ankle with 1:52 remaining in the third quarter, re-aggravating an injury suffered two games prior in Atlanta and sending him limping to the locker room for evaluation.He returned in the fourth quarter, but the injury, which he called a sprain, put his availability for Monday’s game against the Orlando Magic at Staples Center in question.
“He’ll be a game-time decision. We hope he’ll be able to play,” coach Phil Jackson said.
Hopefully this is not a serious injury that will affect Kobe come playoff time. I don’t know how many more injuries he can play through. The Lakers need a healthy Kobe, if they want to win another championship.
