Kobe "85 percent" sure he'll play in opener

By Brian Kamenetzky

Dave McMenamin has the news.

Kobe Bryant participated fully in shootaround Tuesday morning, and unless his strained right foot acts up in the interim he'll suit up for tonight's season opener against Dallas.

Very good news for the Lakers, both in terms of the game itself and as an indication of how his strained right foot is healing after a week on the shelf.
