Bryant would not speculate whether he would play Friday against the Indiana Pacers, but he left Philips Arena on Wednesday walking with a limp but without the aid of crutches.
Bryant had 31 points, seven rebounds and five assists in the loss. He was hurt on a baseline jumper that would have forced overtime if it had gone in with 3 seconds remaining.
Bryant landed on Dahntay Jones’ foot and twisted his left ankle, crumpling to the court in pain.
