Bryant, who scored four points in 14 minutes against the Charlotte Bobcats, did not come out with the team for the second half. The Lakers announced Bryant will be re-examined Wednesday.
Bryant did not speak with reporters after Los Angeles' 102-98 victory.
``I didn't even ask him about the injury,'' coach Phil Jackson said. ``The trainer said he hyperextended his knee somewhat. We'll see what it's like (Wednesday), then go from there.''
Bryant injured his knee jumping for a rebound with 3:08 left in the first half. The reigning NBA MVP limped off the court favoring his right leg. He motioned to the bench to come out and Jackson called a 20-second timeout.
