Kobe Bryant will play tonight in Game 6 against Denver after missing the morning shoot-around because of intestinal flu-like symptoms.
"He's holding down fluids and stuff like that," Lakers Coach Mike Brown said 90 minutes before tip-off. "He'll play."
The Lakers lead the first-round series against the Nuggets, 3-2.
Bryant averaged 31.2 points in the first five games of the playoffs, including a 43-point outburst in Game 5.
