DALLAS (AP) - Kobe Bryant left the Los Angeles Lakers’ game at Dallas on Saturday after coming down awkwardly on his ankle.

Bryant fell to the floor after having the ball slapped away from him by Shawn Marion late in the third quarter. While Jason Kidd converted the turnover into a layup, Bryant remained on the floor in obvious pain.

After getting up, Bryant was limping when he took a few steps and called timeout.

Bryant went to the bench briefly before walking unassisted, but limping, off the court and toward the locker room. He returned to the bench early in the fourth quarter and came back in with 6 1/2 minutes to play.
