Mike Brown Trusts Lakers’ Medical Staff with Kobe’s Injury

Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown is not worried about the treatment Kobe Bryant receives for his injured wrist. Bryant gets injections before each game to ease the pain in his wrist, but it seems as though Brown is perfectly fine with that procedure, Janis Carr of OCRegister.com writes.

Kobe suffered the injury during a pre-season game against the Los Angeles Clippers and the shots offer a way for Kobe to get rid of the pain while on the floor.

“I believe in our training staff, and I believe in our doctors when they’re telling me everything is all right with it, that there’s not anything to worry about, not a minute limitation or anything like that,” Brown said.”So as long as those guys tell me that, and Kobe feels ready to go, then I’m ready for him to go.”

Even with the injured wrist, Kobe is not hesitant to shoot the ball on the offensive end. He has been in the 20 field-goal attempt range nearly all season and has been more productive than he was last season.

As of right now, Bryant is averaging 27.8 ppg, 6.2 rpg and 5.8 apg. It is safe to say that the torn ligament in Kobe’s hand is not affecting him too much.
