Whew. Kobe is a tough player… (take notes Bron Bron)
L.A. Daily News: Kobe Bryant dislocated his right pinkie while trying for a steal midway through the second quarter. Postgame X-rays were negative, and Bryant said he would play tonight against the Atlanta Hawks.
“It’s pretty sore,” he said. “I just feel like I have four fingers. I just don’t feel it. It feels like it’s not there. It’s a weird feeling. During the game it felt like it wasn’t there. I would pick up the ball and I would have to check.
“It felt like (the ball) kept sliding out of my hand.”
