Kobe’s knee may be something to watch out for…

kneesO.C. Register: Kobe Bryant certainly played very well Thursday night and was in fine spirits after the game. But he also took nearly a full hour after the game ended to meet with reporters — easily a season-high delay — primarily because he was getting what he referred to as “maintenance” work done by rehabilitation specialist Judy Seto before meeting the rest of the team for the flight to Portland.

Bryant donned a protective sleeve over his right knee for the game against Denver, even though he said after the game Tuesday night in Sacramento that his overall health was good. Bryant had surgery on that right knee in 2006, hyperextended it in an October exhibition in San Diego this season and periodically has dealt with knee tendinitis.

Just something to keep an eye on amid the Lakers’ joy — and Andrew Bynum’s especially refreshing individual joy — over how well another right knee (Bynum’s) held up in the victory over the Nuggets.

    I hope it isn’t anything major, just soreness. We need to stop playing him in the 4th quarter.

    Right. Kobe got wheeled off in a wheel chair.

    Nah, our boy has played with separated joints and body parts. It’s going to be funny listening to you when Kobe and his 4 1/2 finger light Boston up like the 4th of July.
