Kobe Bryant to play in opener

Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will play in Tuesday's season opener against the Dallas Mavericks after being sidelined with a strained right foot.

He confirmed the news on his Facebook page: "Feeling good enough to play tonight!"

The 14-time All Star suffered the injury on Oct. 21 against the Sacramento Kings and missed the team's last two preseason games.

The Lakers went 0-8 during exhibition play.
