Mike D’Antoni: Kobe “has a chance” of playing tonight
Although Kobe Bryant is still a game time decision against the Indiana Pacers, it’s starting to look like Bryant will play. Bryant suffered a “severe” ankle sprain that he called “the worst he’s had” since 2000. D’Antoni maintains that Bryant is a game time decision, but his “gut feeling” is that he will play.
On Wednesday he was determined out indefinitely, and on Thursday a Lakers source said Bryant’s chances of playing are “not good.” The Black Mamba has been doing constant rehabilitation with the Lakers trainer. His participation will likely depend on how the game goes.
D'Antoni on KB: "We don't want to injure it any more. We'll see how it goes." Maintains that it's a gametime decision, but his gut says yes—
