10:30 AM ET 11.24 | Coach Mike D'Antoni said it would be "very hard" for Kobe Bryant to play during the Lakers' three-game road trip next week. Bryant did not practice Saturday, the second consecutive team session he did not take part in after two strong days of full-contact work earlier this week. Bryant did some running and shooting off to the side Saturday at the Lakers' training facility. He also worked on some individual moves. D'Antoni said. He is not expected to play Sunday against Sacramento. The Lakers then head out for games Tuesday at Washington, Wednesday at Brooklyn and Friday at Detroit. "It's a process. I don't think it's going to happen overnight so we'll just have to kind of see," D'Antoni said Saturday. "He knows what we're doing, so when he's ready to go, he'll tell us."

First week in December is when it's likely for Bryant and Nash to return, according to a story yesterday.

It looks like Lakers will easily make the 7-8 seed.

Dumbtoni doesn't ride him til he breaks. Kobe did that on his own. Dumbtoni has no control on Kobe. Kobe only controls Kobe...

Truth. And a true leader like no other of this time. Yes there have been greats in the past and will be in the future but no one holds a candle to the Black Mamba today...
