Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant had surgery on Wednesday to repair his right rotator cuff and is expected to miss the next nine months according to the Orange County Register.
Insight: This puts Bryant on pace to return around the beginning of November which is a longer recovery time than originally anticipated. Therefore, there is a chance he misses the beginning of next season.
 
1/26/2015 3:46:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will have surgery on his shoulder Wednesday and this will guarantee the end of his 2014-15 season.
Insight: Bryant should be at full strength to start training camp.
 
1/23/2015 3:56:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant (shoulder) is expected the miss the remainder of the season, according to Ramona Shelburne of Espn.com.
Insight: An announcement is expected by the team to make it official, but owners need to prepare for the worst. Wayne Ellington will continue to start, with Nick Young, Wes Johnson and Jordan Clarkson also benefiting. Bryant should be at full strength to start training camp.
 
1/22/2015 3:45:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant has a tear in his rotator cuff.
Insight: The MRI results revealed the injury, which is obviously not good. There is still no word on a timetable, but we would guess it will be a lengthy one, and possibly season-ending with the Lakers essentially out of playoff contention. Stay tuned.
 
1/22/2015 2:25:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant received an MRI on his hurt shoulder.
Insight: Bryant injured his shoulder during Wednesday's game versus the Pelicans, but he downplayed the injury. The Lakers will release the results of the MRI Thursday evening according to Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News.
 
1/21/2015 2:22:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will play on Wednesday versus the Pelicans.
Insight: Bryant did not play the last two games in order to receive additional rest for his aching body. Bryant should be fresh for this game and even though he probably won't see more than 30 minutes, Bryant should be in all standard league lineups.
 
1/20/2015 3:04:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant missed Monday's game against Phoenix and Tuesday's practice.
Insight: Bryant should be considered no better than questionable for Wednesday versus New Orleans. Wayne Ellington would get the start.
 
1/19/2015 3:02:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant has been downgraded to out for Monday's game against Phoenix.
Insight: Bryant recorded 19 points, 17 assists and six rebounds Thursday, but then missed Friday's game. This is his eighth game he has missed in the last 15 contests. Wayne Ellington is expected to start.
 
1/19/2015 11:48:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant is doubtful for Monday's game against Phoenix.
Insight: Bryant recorded 19 points, 17 assists and six rebounds Thursday, but then missed Friday's game. He's likely to sit at least one of the Lakers' games during this three-game road trip.
 
1/16/2015 9:42:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant put together a very nice line in Thursday's game against Cleveland.
Insight: Bryant recorded 19 points, 17 assists and six rebounds. That's the good news. There is also talk of shutting him down, perhaps in March. This would be a good time to "sell high" on the Lakers' guard.
 
1/15/2015 9:04:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will play on Thursday against the Cavaliers.
Insight: Bryant will face LeBron James for the 20th time in his career. Bryant should be in all lineups.
 
1/14/2015 10:18:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant had an abysmal shooting night during Tuesday's loss to the Heat.
Insight: He went 3-of-19 from the floor for 12 points, seven assists, six boards, two 3-pointers, obe steal, and two turnovers. Owners need to try and trade Bryant, as he will not even play every night.
 
1/13/2015 8:59:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will play Tuesday against the Heat.
Insight: Get him into your lineups. Wayne Ellington's value takes a hit with Bryant active.
 
1/12/2015 4:32:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant practiced on Monday and apparently "feels a whole lot better," according to head coach Byron Scott.
Insight: He has not played in the past two games, and is considered a game-time decision for Tuesday. Wayne Ellington will continue to see an increase in value whenever Bryant cannot give it a go.
 
1/11/2015 3:11:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will be a game-time decision.
Insight: Wayne Ellington would start and see an extended run if Bryant doesn't play. Wesley Johnson is also a question mark for this one.
 
1/9/2015 9:13:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant (rest) will not Friday.
Insight: Wayne Ellington will start and see an extended run.
 
Hot1/7/2015 2:47:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will play on Wednesday against the Clippers.
Insight: Over the last four games, Bryant has been much more efficient averaging 17.0 ppg, 8.5 rpg and 8.0 apg while shooting 46.9 percent. Hopefully he continues to take around 12 shots rather than more than 20 shots like he was taking back in November and early December. With his shot attempts down, his percentages have gone up along with the rebounds and assists.
 
Hot1/5/2015 10:32:00 AM
Description: Lakers coach Byron Scott wants guard Kobe Bryant to sit out one of the two games in back-to-back sets for the remainder of the season, according to Bill Oram of the Orange County Register.
Insight: That means Bryant is expected to sit out Monday's game against Portland. Although fantasy owners are getting less scoring, they are receiving more assists, rebounds and a better shooting percentage as he displayed in Sunday's 20-point, six-rebound, six-assist, three-steal effort in the Lakers win over Indiana.
 
Hot1/3/2015 9:24:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant contiues to see a dip in his scoring numbers but a better performance in his overall game.
Insight: Bryant scored 15 points, well below his 23.8 ppg average, but he also had nine rebounds and eight assists. Both fantasy owners and the Lakers like this version of Kobe much better. Although fantasy owners are getting less scoring, they are receiving more assists, rebounds and a better shooting percentage. The Lakers are also far more competitive when Bryant spreads the ball.
 
Hot1/2/2015 11:02:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant has been on a minutes limit (32) according to coach Byron Scott.
Insight: It didn't stop him from posting a triple-double. He had 23 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists on Tuesday. But it does figure to limit his upside as much as keep him fresh.
