After suffering what was labeled a severe ankle sprain on Wednesday night against the Atlanta Hawks, Kobe Bryant will play tonight in Indiana against the Pacers. Bryant was initially listed as out indefinitely, which turned out to mean absolutely nothing.
Bryant will suit up and take on the Pacers with Dwight Howard and the rest of the Lakers despite all the talk surrounding the severity of his ankle injury, according to Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times.
Kobe Bryant will try to play tonight vs. Indy. Has a severely sprained left ankle. Was declared out indefinitely by Lakers two days ago.
