Kobe Bryant Status Update: Lakers Guard Expected To Play Despite Missing Shootaround

Sure, Kobe Bryant missed shootaround for the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday morning, but a little thing like gastroenteritis isn't going to stop him from playing in Game 6 against the Denver Nuggets, reports Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

Bryant has averaged 31.2 points over the first five games, including 43 points in a losing effort against the Nuggets on Tuesday. His two lowest-scoring games -- 22 points each time -- came at the Pepsi Center, though his team won Game 4 there.

Will the Nuggets be able to take advantage of a less than 100 percent Kobe, or will we see a dominant Kobe?
