After sustaining a broken nose in last night's All-Star Game, Kobe Bryant will see an ear, nose and throat specialist in Los Angeles tomorrow, according to Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times.

Bryant sustained the injury in the third quarter of the Western Conference's 152-149 victory last night, taking a hard foul from Dwyane Wade. He left the court briefly to receive attention from a trainer. Bryant returned to Los Angeles today, and it's unclear whether he'll play Wednesday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Bryant rarely misses games; he has played all 82 in three of the last four seasons, and all 34 for the Lakers so far this year. He leads the NBA with 28.4 points per game.
