Kobe Bryant Undergoes Dental Work after Elbow

obe Bryant, who had one of his front teeth loosened after he was elbowed in the mouth by Phoenix’s Leandro Barbosa in the third quarter of Sunday’s game, saw the team dentist after the team arrived in Los Angeles that night.

He had a splint placed across his two front teeth. Bryant will play tonight, but he probably won’t wear the splint during the game.,0,4841783.story
