Kobe Bryant Sprains Right Pinkie

Kobe sprained his right little finger on Friday and wound up scoring a season-low 11 points, but X-rays were negative. From the L.A. Daily News: “Kobe Bryant scored a season-low nine points on 3-for-11 shooting and suffered a sprained right little finger when he jammed it while trying to catch a pass from teammate Pau Gasol in the first quarter. X-rays taken after the game were negative. ‘It throbbed for about 20 minutes,’ Bryant said.”

  • Pam Lovely

    No he will not be fine, If I had to go up against Lebron & Wade I would have a hurt pinkie too, at least until after 12/26 hahaha

    I fully expect a story in the next year or two stating, “Kobe Bryant has right hand amputated, scores 27 with stump”

  • http://psp2423@yahoo.com Eboy

    Next game he’s going to score 30. I want no excuses for when he plays the Heat if he does he just might as well sit out.

    EBOY: It would be kind of lame for us Laker fans to blame a bad game on a pinky lol…I’m sure many will try though

    ^^^ @ JTaylor21 Pretty sure, he’s making this up again to get all the attention back to him now that Amare, the Heat, the Spurs and the Celtics are hogging all the media attention.

  • Blackphantom

    I know I’m not gonna try to blame something on a pinky finger if a bad game happens. C’mon now, it’s his pinky finger

    Hey morons, (JTaylor21 and Nick Tha Quick) I think Kobe has had his fill of the “spotlight” too last him a lifetime, why would he fake an injury to get more of “it”??

    Also, @BlackPhantom, have you ever tried to shoot with a sore/broken pinky? You wouldn’t score nine points on my niece.

    Kobe is toughest player in league when it comes to playing with injuries, some of yall cats are funny, just a few years back Lebron set out 3 games for a hurt finger. Look it up cats and no excuses for Christmas Game, with Bynum at center spot. Lakers should win unless Lebron can HEAT up and make jumpshots with that sloppy form. BOOK IT!!

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Uncle05Sam Earl

    @Blackphantom Got it man, sorry.

  • LD

    As long as no one forgets how important it is to win the Christmas game…

  • Blackphantom

    The Christmas game is pretty important street-cred wise, but it isn’t dictate the rest of the season unless one of those teams get beat really really bad

  • Blackphantom

    *isn’t going to dictate

  • KB8toSG8

    @Ova Chicken

    When did Kobe score 9 points last time when his team wasn’t going towards a blowout win? i.e when his team needed him, when was the last time he scored only 9 points?

  • LD

    The Lakers got their ass kicked last year on Christmas at home against the Cavs. Lakers fans were so upset, they threw their foam fingers on the court. It was sad. But, at the end of the season they were happy again.

  • OvaChicken

    My bad man for reals on that 1. i was actualy lookin at the stats from the last 10point game & He only had 9. but yes i over fried myself on that one. i put my chicken foot up. thats what sitting in the crib for a month anda half(ACL RECON) & Commin here does to a man. Back to work today. snap back to realiT!

  • KeviN

    Anyone who says the little finger on your shooting hand doesnt matter has obviously never shot a basketball in real life. Idiots.

  • unrel

    so wait.. when someone talks about an injury, big or small.. because a reporter asked about it.. he’s whining and coming up with excuses?.. haters must come out for the holidays.. and the christmas game is a trap game for every home team.. so don’t put any weight on it as if it’s a 7-game series.. there’s no street cred involved unless you’re a part of the ESPN/ABC hood.. because they’re the only ones getting that money..
