Kobe Bryant says “ankle still throbbing”

Kobe Bryant’s cemented a well-earned reputation for managing his pain level.

But hours after the Lakers’ 95-90 victory Tuesday over the New Jersey Nets, the Lakers’ star found himself halting his halt cycle to treat his strained right foot and ankle.

“Had a hard time sleeping last night,” Bryant said on his Facebook. “Ankle still throbbing. Had to get up every few hours to ice it. Tried The Stones and The Beatles and I gotta say I’m into it! It has a calm aggression. Sets the tone for our game tonight in Sacramento.”

Regardless, Bryant still plans to suit up against the Kings.
