Dave McMenamin has the news out of this afternoon's shootaround:
"...[Kobe] Bryant passed a neurological exam, a baseline test for concussion management as well as a stationary bike test and treadmill test while visiting with Dr. Vern Williams before heading to the Lakers' practice facility to participate in an on-court test consisting of a game of 2-on-2, monitored by the Lakers' training staff. If Bryant passes the full-contact basketball test and remains symptom-free, he could play in the Lakers' game Wednesday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves at Staples Center.

Good news, for sure. As for the broken nose, Bryant has been fitted with a protective mask, and if cleared to play will test it out before the game then decide if he wants to wear it.
