Lakers News: Mike D’Antoni Expects Kobe to Play Friday vs. Wizards

Kobe Bryant has missed (basically) the last three games with a sprained ankle that he suffered in the team’s loss to the Atlanta Hawks. He attempted to play last Friday against the Indiana Pacers, but only got 12 minutes of action in before being forced to sit for the final three quarters of the game. He didn’t play Sunday against the Kings (W) or Monday against the Suns (L), but he could be back sooner than expected.

According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles, team coach Mike D’Antoni said he believes Bryant will be back in action this upcoming Friday when the Lakers host the Washington Wizards.

 

After the team suffered an embarrassing loss to the Suns on Monday night, it’s evident they need Bryant’s offense back in the lineup. With the team fighting hard for playoff positioning as well, Bryant’s contributions are more important than ever.

Friday will be the second and final meeting between the Lakers and Wizards. L.A. beat the Wizards in Washington back on Dec. 14th.
