Default Kobe denies pushing Dwight to play while hurt

The newest Lakers firestorm arrived Thursday after Kobe Bryant apparently told ESPN.com the night before that Dwight Howard needed to come back from his injured shoulder. Quickly.

But Bryant said Thursday he wasn't prodding Howard to return.

"Not even a little bit," Bryant said in a quiet moment after the team's morning shoot-around, adding that he was surprised at the tone of the ESPN story. "In this case, it's not legitimate. I was shocked."

Default 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."
