Kobe Clears Concussion Tests, Could Play Against Timberwolves

LOS ANGELES (CBS) – Not even a concussion or broken nose is going to hold back 14-time All-Star Kobe Bryant from tonight’s game against Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

“Kobe has passed all of the tests mandated thus far (neurological, bicycle, Axon and treadmill),” tweeted by KCAL Lakers sideline reporter. “Bottom line is that if Kobe passes the 2-on-2 hoops test now, & another w/neurologist pregame, he may well be able to play.”

In case if Kobe plays, the Lakers will have a mask ready to go for him.

Tuesday afternoon, Dr. Vern Williams diagnosed Kobe with a concussion.

Even though Kobe is listed as game-time decision, expect him to start.
