I’m glad he’s getting it checked rather than just playing through it. Either way, looks like we’ll most likely have another Kobe-less lineup.

Lakers BasketBlog: Kobe Bryant, who on Saturday in Portland missed his first game since Dec. 8, 2006, had an MRI exam on his sprained ankle Monday morning and is a game-time decision for the San Antonio game.Phil Jackson said after Monday’s shootaround that the results of the exam would not be available until later on in the evening. Jackson will likely address the issue during his pregame media session at STAPLES Center.

    i think most of us laker fans want to see him play, its just a different feeling when he does, but we must think about the playoffs and finals, a long road is ahead of us, and we need kobe to be 100 %.

    On a side note, Chris, can you give me an adress where i can e-mail you?

  • Oh,

    If he’s going to be out for a while, he should get surgery on his finger while he’s at it. That thing’s messing with his game.

    • drive-for-16th

      if he gets surgery on his fingers, hes gonna be out for 6 weeks, WE CANNOT AFFORD 6 WEEKS.

  • drive-for-16th

    kobe has soo many broken parts, he needs to get everything done this summer.

    • lakerbunny

    now that kobe will be out for more games I am very much sure I will win the MVP….and I am going for the 12 straight agains NJ tonight I love the east cost teams! and waiting to get a blow job from david everytime I win….

    i think kobe should pull a “melo” and show up to the game in uniform + warm-ups (rather than in street clothes).

    something about doing that plays with the psyche of the opposing team, the thought of “he can come in at any moment in the game” rather than “we know he’s out, sure win”. i just think that it’s interesting that the nuggets are the only team that does this with their injured players.

    Unless you are out for the year (i.e. Greg Oden, Yao Ming, Blake Griffin), then short-term injured stars should come suited up in uniform, even if it is only to mess with the other team’s head.

    I don’t care how long it takes (whether its 6 WEEKS or not) He needs to get everything FIXED.

    as many shots as he misses,that right arm is probably enjoying the break….instead of andrew bynum,andrew brittle fits better.
