Bryant has concussion to go with broken nose from All-Star game
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) — Kobe Bryant has a concussion in addition to the broken nose he sustained in the All-Star game.
The Los Angeles Lakers say Bryant saw a neurologist on Tuesday and he diagnosed the concussion. The All-Star guard will see Dr. Vern Williams again on Wednesday, and his status for that night’s home game against Minnesota is day-to-day.
Bryant was first examined Tuesday by an ear, nose and throat specialist, who confirmed his broken nose and referred him to Williams.
Bryant was injured during Sunday night’s game in Orlando, Fla. He was struck by Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, who said Tuesday that he has apologized to Bryant for breaking his nose.
