Kobe said his ankle sprain, courtesy of Dahntay Jones, is the worst he’s suffered since his 2000 NBA playoff ankle sprain – courtesy of Jalen Rose.
Rose admitted he tried to hurt Kobe and you make the call if you think Jones’ trip was intentional or not. Kobe only missed 1 game due to the 2000 sprain and eventually got revenge in the form of a championship and 81 points on Rose. I think Kobe will miss more than 1 game with this injury but I expect him to serve up some cold revenge on Jones in the future in the form of a NBA record for oldest player to score X amount of points.
Jones took to Twitter to claim his innocence.
Tape doesn’t lie. Ankle was turned on the floor after the leg kick out that knocked him off balance. I would never try to hurt the man

Kobe’s wife took to Instagram to show a pic of his ankle.
