Bryant went down in the second half with a knee injury, where it appeared he either hit it on Tony Allen’s knee or the floor. Bryant finished the game off and appeared fine, which clearly is not the case.
This makes the fourth out of four Lakers who have started at point guard to be significantly injured. Steve Nash, Steve Blake, and Jordan Farmar all have went down with the injuries preceding Bryant’s.
