DENVER (AP) - The Los Angeles Lakers say Kobe Bryant has a stomach ailment and will be a game-time decision for Thursday night's Game 6 against the Denver Nuggets.
Bryant missed the team's shootaround at the Pepsi Center on Thursday morning.
Coach Mike Brown said he expects his All-Star guard to be in the lineup when the Lakers try to wrap up the best-of-seven series Thursday night.
Bryant is coming off a 43-point performance in Game 5, but he missed a game-tying 3-pointer in L.A.'s 102-99 loss Tuesday night at Staples Center.
