Bryant Diagnosed with Concussion after NBA All-Star Game
Kobe Bryant suffered a concussion and a broken nose after being struck in the face by Dwyane Wade during the 61st NBA All-Star game, the Los Angeles Lakers announced.
The Lakers said the four-time all-star MVP was officially diagnosed with a concussion after team doctors examined him on Tuesday.
"Doctor (Vern) Williams's diagnosis after evaluating Bryant was that in addition to the nasal fracture, Bryant also suffered a concussion in Sunday's game," said Lakers spokesman John Black in a news release.
Bryant fractured his nose in the third quarter after taking a forearm in the head from Team East guard Wade.
Bryant moved past Michael Jordan to become the leading all-star game scorer in history in Sunday's contest which was won by Bryant's Team West.
The Lakers said the 33-year-old Bryant was questionable for Wednesday's game against Minnesota.
The Lakers host Wade's Miami Heat on Sunday at Staples Center arena.
