Kobe Bryant: (Ankle) Playing Friday

Update: Bryant (ankle) will play Friday, the team’s official Twitter account reports.

Recommendation: Bryant missed the team’s last two games with an ankle sprain but will return to the starting lineup Friday. He benefited from three consecutive off days for the Lakers and should return to playing big minutes on a nightly basis.
