Kobe says not to worry about that sore right elbow of his ...
"It’s OK," said Bryant, who hurt his elbow dunking on Brandon Knight in the Detroit game on Sunday. "It’s sore, but I don’t really think it’s affecting me too much. Some shots it does, but not really. Really the shots that I missed tonight were a lot of some pointblank ones that were really at the rim and those patented fadeaways that I normally put in. I just to stay with it."
He aggravated the elbow with that fourth quarter hammer dunk, but didn't let on.
"It was (hurt) after (the dunk), but after a play like that you really can’t grab your arm. It messes up the swag of the moment. So you got to kind of suck it up for a while."
