08:08 AM ET 03.14 | Some positive news for Kobe Bryant came in the form of negative X-rays, but the Lakers star is out indefinitely with a left ankle sprain. Bryant appeared to land on Dahntay Jones' foot and twisted his left ankle, crumpling to the court in pain. No foul was called. After the game, Bryant said referees need to do a better job protecting shooters. ... Bryant later tweeted: "#dangerousplay that should have been called. Period." Jones responded via Twitter: "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." He later added: "Leg kick that makes contact with a defensive player is an offense foul. Period. The nba changed that rule 2 yrs ago. Stop it!"

Sounds like kobe wants no one to breathe on him, now we will see the nba giving him double the foul shots. I really get tired of this dude he complains about a dirty play yet he kicks his foot out with only 1 foot to break his fall its what he deserved. Any kobe is just as dirty as anyone he needs to quit crying.
