Following his brief knee scare against the Thunder last night, Bryant likened himself to the star of the movie “Unbreakable”: “I was concerned, I was very concerned,’ Bryant said. (But) I did my ACL check, my MCL check (and) it was all intact.’ A knee injury is not something Bryant needed, not with LeBron James and the Cavaliers coming to town Christmas. He already is playing with a fractured right index finger and he got knocked in the jaw by Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook. ‘We’re fortunate that he didn’t do anything disastrous,’ Jackson said. But isn’t Bryant concerned about these injuries? ‘Nah, I’m Bruce Willis, man,’ he said. ‘I’m not going to say I got a knee, I got a finger. I’m fine. I’m more than fine. I’ll be ready to go on friday. I’m healthy, I’m fine.'”
