Report: Kobe Bryant Suffers Mild Concussion
Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant reportedly suffered a mild concussion in last night’s All-Star game, a source has told Yahoo! Sports.
Bryant was on the receiving end of a hard foul by Eastern Conference guard Dwyane Wade in the third quarter of last night’s exhibition game. The 14-time All-Star reportedly suffered a nasal fracture on the play. He was able to finish the contest, but received a CT scan in Orlando Sunday before flying home to Los Angeles.
The 31-year-old scored 27 points in the West’s 152-149 victory, he also passed Michael Jordan as the All-Star Game’s all-time leading scorer, with 271 career points.
Yahoo! Reports that Bryant is still expected to play on Wednesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
