Kobe Bryant has had plenty of calls go his way during 17 seasons in the NBA, so it would be easy to dismiss his complaints in the ongoing debate about how he sprained his ankle.
Lakers star Kobe Bryant is expected to start Friday night against Indiana just two nights after sustaining a severely sprained left ankle in Atlanta.
Bryant tweeted Thursday that his ankle was "still very swollen. Treatment all day." The Lakers had the day off Thursday in Indianapolis, the final stop on their three-game road trip.
Kobe Bryant says Dahntay Jones' dangerous defense left him with a sprained left ankle, and the NBA agreed.
The NBA says officials missed a foul call when Kobe Bryant was injured in a game against Atlanta.
The Lakers' push for the playoffs might be without Kobe Bryant for a while.
"I don't think this will be anything serious going forward," Jones said. "It will blow over after a little bit."
"I'm not saying it should have happened," Jones said after the latest run-in. "But these things happen in basketball. Unfortunately, there's no exact science to contesting jump shots, exact space and specificities. I just tried to get as close to him as I could to try to contest the jump shot. That is all."
