Lakers News: Mike D’Antoni Will Give Bryant Final Choice on Return

NBA: Brooklyn Nets at Los Angeles LakersNo one knows his body better than an NBA player and whether or not it is too early to return from an injury.

Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant suffered a severe ankle sprain in the team’s loss to the Atlanta Hawks and he called it one of the worst injuries of his career. Even though the Lakers are battling for their playoff lives on a nightly basis, Bryant did not want to risk further injury by playing in the Lakers’ game on Sunday.

[Mike D’Antoni spoke to Dave McMenamin and he said that the decision to play on Monday will ultimately be left up to Bryant.

Pau Gasol has been ruled out for the Lakers’ game versus the Suns and there isn’t really any reason as to why Bryant should suit up. The Lakers have shown that they can win games with Kobe on the bench and they have enough fire power without their star to beat the Suns.

Los Angeles needs a healthy Kobe Bryant down the stretch of the season and it should be cautious about playing him earlier than he should be.
