Injured Bryant gets all-star nod


BRIEFS-bryantNEW YORK: Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant was named to his 17th NBA All-Star Game on Thursday (Friday in Manila), same day his club announced he had a torn rotator cuff. Bryant garnered one of the Western Conference starting guard spots over league-leading scorer James Harden. But before the voting results were announced the Lakers had revealed the veteran had suffered a torn rotator cuff in Wednesday night’s game, making it unlikely he will be able to play in the February 15 mid-season showcase at Madison Square Garden. Bryant received 1,152,402 votes — 83,034 more than Harden.
