Bryant Dislocates Finger; Expects to Play Sunday


Lakers star Kobe Bryant suffered a dislocated right middle finger late in Friday’s 119-113 loss to the San Antonio Spurs at Staples Center but returned to play.

X-rays after the game came back negative, a Lakers spokesman said. Bryant said he expects to play in the Lakers’ next game, Sunday against the Bulls in Chicago, his final game in the city where his idol Michael Jordan starred.
