Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant injured his left ankle against the New Orleans Hornets in Game 4. Posted by Ben Golliver.

During the closing minutes of Game 4 against New Orleans, Los Angeles Lakers All-Star guard Kobe Bryant tweaked his left ankle while defending Hornets guard Willie Green.

Bryant, who had battled left ankle problems earlier this season, appeaered to badly roll his left ankle as Green attacked the paint. Bryant's momentum carried him into Green and he was whistled for a foul. After consulting with Lakers coach Phil Jackson and the team's training staff, Bryant re-entered the game and finished out the stretch.

The Hornets pulled out the Game 4 win, 93-88.

Following the game, Yahoo! Sports reported: "Kobe has crutches and lakers say they're considering MRI on injured ankle. Kobe acknowledged concern about what he called a left foot, not ankle, injury but expects to play in Game 5."

The Orange County Register added: "The Lakers likely will have Bryant undergo an MRI exam and X-ray Monday. They are calling it a sprained ankle for now."

Here's video of the injury. 



More details on Bryant's condition as they become available.

He didn't fake the injury but he has milked it for what it is worth. He will be playing and not be bothered one bit by it. It is Chris Paul that is bothering him. He is setting it up for losing the series and the built in excuse that comes with it. Game five winner is the winner of the series and old Kobe knows it. The foot will not be an issue. Just an excuse.
