The incident took place on the last minute of the fourth quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers-New Orleans Hornets match at the New Orleans Arena, where the Hornets won, 93-88.

Apparently, Kobe Bryant got injured when he was defending against Hornet’s Willie Green, who dropped on the floor, as the act ended in a foul.

Bryant, who was recently fined for an apparent gay slur, was seen feeling the pain of his ankle injury, but later vowed he can play on Tuesday’s Game 5.

“It’s sore,” Bryant was quoted atESPN.go.com, as told to reporters after the game. “It just rolled over. It’s been weeks since I hurt it last and when it happens, when you roll your ankle once, it’s easy to go and it just went.”

“I should play,” the Lakers star said, referring to Lakers-Hornets Game 5 on Tuesday. “It’s going to take a lot to stop me from playing.”

“I’m concerned, as I am about any injury, but I’ve played through so many of them it kind of becomes old hat for me.” Kobe Bryant added.

Bryant left the arena on crutches and scored 17 points only, as the Hornets is now tied with the Lakers, 2-2 for the best-of-seven Western Conference first round series.
