    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant’s knee has not been the problem this season. Which is a nice change of pace. Apparently flying all the way to Germany to have an experimental blood treatment done on his knee seems well worth the expense now. Just don’t ask about the wrist. We’re not talking about the wrist. Wait… what about…

    Clippers' Butler tries to strip the ball from Lakers shooting guard Bryant during NBA preseason basketball game in Los Angeles

    Did anyone really expect a different answer? Kobe Bryant downplayed his injury and told the media he would play on Sunday in the Lakers opener against the Chicago Bulls on Christmas Day. Here are his quotes via the Los Angeles Daily News. “I should be fine,” he said…. “It just swelled up,” he said. “It…

    Clippers' Butler tries to strip the ball from Lakers shooting guard Bryant during NBA preseason basketball game in Los Angeles

    Another season, another injury in his shooting hand for Kobe Bryant to play through (and say it doesn’t bother him while his performance clearly shows otherwise). Kobe will sit out Wednesday’s Lakers preseason game against the Clippers due to a torn lunotriquetral ligament in his right wrist, the team announced Wednesday afternoon. The injury occurred…

  4. Hornets’ coach explains Kobe’s ankle better than Kobe

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    Kobe Bryant wouldn’t really talk about his injured ankle, and he wasn’t letting doctors look at it either. All Phil Jackson would say was that he was playing. After the game, it took Hornets coach Monty Williams to sum it up best (as reported by Sam Amick at Sports Illustrated): “All this talk about his…

  5. NBA Playoffs: It’s not Kobe’s ankle, it’s Chris Paul breaking them

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    Game 5 is about ankles. The one getting all the hype is Lakers guard Kobe Bryant’s left ankle. His foot is still attached, so he’s playing. That’s not the question. He twisted his ankle (and foot) at the end of Los Angeles 93-88 loss to New Orleans in Game 4 and has since refused to…

  6. Kobe tweaks ankle, stays in game, expects to play in Game 5

    Apr 25, 2011, 2:20 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New Orleans Hornets - Game Four

    In the regular season, Kobe Bryant would have come out… Oh, who are we kidding? Kobe would have stayed in if this was a pickup game on the blacktop at the local junior high. It’s how he’s wired. But it was a playoff game so in case there was any doubt, he was waving off…

  7. Kobe Bryant game-time decision Monday night

    Mar 14, 2011, 1:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

    Kobe Bryant played through a sprained ankle aggravated during the Lakers thumping of the Dallas Mavericks Saturday, but now that the ankle has had a couple days to really swell up and get sore, he is a game-time decision for Monday night’s big game against the Orlando Magic. So said Phil Jackson, and we trust…
