OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant left Wednesday night's game at Oklahoma City, heading to the locker room after grimacing and grabbing at his right elbow.

A team spokesman said Bryant has an ulnar nerve contusion and his return is questionable.

Bryant airballed his first shot of the game from 3-point range and was grabbing at his elbow while Earl Clark shot free throws early in the game. The Thunder's Kevin Durant later stole the ball from him, and the two tangled arms with Bryant being called for a foul.

Bryant came out of the game and immediately headed to the locker room with a trainer.
