Los Angeles Lakers Injury Update: Kobe Bryant Could Play Christmas Day

Kobe Bryant is banged up again. What else is new?

Bryant's injury will keep him out of the final preseason game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Clippers.  It makes sense to be precautionary with the aging superstar at every turn, particularly in a shortened season where there will be little rest and many games to be played.

However, that does not mean he'll be out any longer.

LAL have not ruled out having Kobe play in X-Mas opener. Will depend on whether he can practice in next few days & how wrist feels.

Bryant is known for wanting to play every basketball game that he possibly can, and if the wrist injury isn't hampering him in practice, I'm pretty sure we'll see something similar this time around, and Kobe will be on the court on Christmas Day if he can even be partly effective. Bryant won't miss a game unless he's absolutely certain that his performance will suffer on the court if he goes out there.

Here's Mike Brown talking about Kobe. I'm sure he said something groundbreaking that'll give us some idea as to whether he'll play or not.
