After suffering a broken nose during Sunday night’s NBA All-Star game in Orlando, there have been reports that Kobe Bryant might be unable to play when the Lakers return to action on Wednesday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
According to the L.A. Times, Bryant will have his injuries looked at on Tuesday.
Bryant will not see an ear, nose and throat specialist until Tuesday, a Lakers spokesman said.
Bryant sustained the injury after a hard foul from Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade, that broke Bryant’s nose and also gave him a concussion.
His status for Wednesday night remains unknown.
