Re: Kobe denies pushing Dwight to play while hurt
Howard took part in the morning shoot-around but was not sure whether he would play later in the day against the Boston Celtics.
He also didn't seem to want to hear what Bryant thought of him. Or didn't think of him.
"He's not a doctor. I'm not a doctor. So that's his opinion," Howard said. "I mean, I want to play. But at the same time, this is my career, this is my future, this is my life. I can't leave that up to anybody else because nobody else is going to take care of me."
