Atlanta Hawks player Dahntay Jones says he feels REALLLY bad about injuring Kobe Bryant“s ankle right before the NBA playoffs … but he”s adamant, he didn”t do it on purpose!

Jones was at LAX yesterday when he told our sources … even though it”s only been 2 months since the controversial play, he doesn”t hold a grudge against people like Ice Cube — who called him a dirty cheater days after the play. 

In case you forgot, Lakers fans were calling for Dahntay”s head after Kobe landed on DJ”s ankle during a jump shot on March 13 — with people saying Dahntay put his foot in Kobe”s jump zone with the intention of injuring the NBA star.

“I apologize once again,” DJ told us … “I wish you a speedy recovery, Kobe.”

Forgive him yet
