It wasn’t more than a couple hours ago we let you know that Kobe Bryant was a game time decision because of flu-like symptoms for tonight’s Lakers match against the Pacers. Just to keep you in the loop we are happy to report that Mike D’Antoni told the media in the pre-game interviews that Kobe Bryant will be playing tonight after all. Don’t be fooled though Pacer Nation, Kobe has a tendency to rise to the occasion when faced with any sort of adversity. I wouldn’t forsee this being any different. The Lakers will need him however as they don’t have much scoring punch with Nash and Kobe out of the lineup at the same time.
Head coach Mike D’Antoni says that Kobe Bryant WILL play tonight after missing this morning’s shootaround. #GoLakers
