Kobe Bryant SG LAL Dec 23 '78
Kobe Bryant rolled his left ankle on the last offensive possession of the game and X-rays were negative.
He took a fade-away jumper and landed on Dahntay Jone's foot. Kobe did walk to the bench under his own power and in true Kobe fashion, he was sitting on the scorers' table and arguing with the ref about a missed foul call on the play. Interestingly, Mike D'Antoni said in the post-game that Bryant was kicked in the shin and it wasn't a sprain, which pretty much sums up how much stock should go into the things D'Antoni says. He's one of the biggest warriors in the history of the NBA, but we'll have to wait and see on his status for Friday. He finished with 31 points, seven boards, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 11-of-33 shooting in a losing effort.
