by May 10, 2012

Kobe Bryant’s status for Game 6 of the Lakers/Nuggets series won’t be known until about 90 minutes prior to tip off tonight, but what we do know for now is that Bryant’s stomach isn’t feeling very well. Per the team: “Lakers guard Kobe Bryant missed Thursday morning’s shootaround ahead of Game 6 with gastroenteritis. We’ll know more about his status for the contest this evening about 90 minutes before tip off when the team’s PR staff or head coach Mike Brown provides an update on his condition. Bryant has a history of playing through injuries and ailments particularly in playoff games, but the team will refrain from speculating until seeing how he feels prior to the game.”
