Bryant has been "symptom-free" since Tuesday afternoon, according to Los Angeles Lakers spokesman John Black. He still had one more test to pass before he was cleared to play, however.
It's an NBA requirement to be symptom free for 24 hours ahead of a game in order for a player with a concussion to play, a policy new this season. Bryant also passed three further tests, one on a bicycle, one on a treadmill and what's known as an Axon test - a baseline test for cognitive function - on Wednesday. Another portion of the test comes on the basketball court, in which Bryant played 2-on-2 subsequent to Black's address to the media.
It'll be interesting to see what happens when the two teams take the floor on Wednesday night.
