Earlier this season when the Raptors played the Lakers, Kobe Bryant fouled Jonas Valanciunas in the first half. 

Valanciunas broke his hand and has been unable to play, including in Toronto’s most recent game against Los Angeles. Valanciunas has missed seven games, but says "no hard feelings" on Twitter after sharing a photo of a Kobe autograph on the cast. 

"Sorry for the break, my brother," wrote Kobe, in the photo. "Stay strong." 

Bryant scored 21 points, but the Raptors won 102-93. Valanciunas comes away from the game with a cool piece of memorabilia, too.
