Kobe Bryant did not suffer a concussion, like reports say he did.
He did, in fact, suffer a nasal fracture in Sunday’s All-Star game. And he will be evaluated by a ear, nose, and throat specialist on Tuesday.
Bryant would not be subject to the league’s concussion protocol if he did not suffer a concussion. He is expected to return to action on Wednesday night.
Bryant collided with Heat guard Dwyane Wade in the third quarter, which caused the Nasal fracture. Bryant continued through the end of the game with the injury.
