Kobe Bryant a Game Time Decision Tonight

Kobe Bryant’s ankle injury could keep him out of tonight’s tilt against the Magic, but knowing him and his aversion to sitting out games, that seems rather unlikely: “Of course, he is Kobe Bryant, known perhaps more than any current player for pushing through injuries, so the Lakers aren’t counting him out of Monday’s game against Orlando. As expected, Phil Jackson called him a ‘game-time decision.’ Jackson was then asked if the fact that L.A. has three days between the Magic game and a Friday contest against Minnesota would factor into the decision, since Bryant could potentially have five days to rehabilitate the ankle were he to miss Monday’s action. ‘Yes and no,’ Jackson responded. ‘It’d be great to have him get three days off to get better, but if he’s capable of playing, he’ll play.’”

    that was a nasty lookin twist, but i’d bet my house on him playing tonight.

    just hope he can adjust accordingly because if he tries to do to much he will hurt the team. Orlando is to good to give chances to. I just cant wait for the Bynum/Howard match up, its rare that they meet when Bynum is at or is close to full fitness.
