Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant posted big numbers, 29 points, five rebounds, seven assists, but missed 18 of 28 shots from the field.
Insight: Bryant is shooting just 38.6 percent from the field this season. We expected a bit of a slow start, but not this poor. However, if you can withstand the early bad shooting, which will surely come around, he's posting solid numbers across the board.
 
11/18/2014 9:53:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant actually shot well from the field in Tuesday's win against the Hawks.
Insight: He was 10-of-18 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line for 28 points. Bryant also had four rebounds, three assists, three 3-pointers, one steal, and three turnovers.
 
11/16/2014 11:02:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant is listed as questionable due to illness, but we expect him to play.
Insight: Kobe is coming off a horrible game and the illness probably caused some of it. He was 1-of-14 from the field (7-of-9 from the line) in 36 minutes of action, for only nine points. He's a warrior and should be out there on Sunday.
 
11/15/2014 9:24:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant had one of the worst games of his career Friday night.
Insight: He was 1-of-14 from the field (7-of-9 from the line) in 36 minutes of action, for only nine points. Bryant did have six assists, four rebounds, two blocks, one steal, and four turnovers. He will continue to struggle from the floor, but will definitely produce much better than Friday night, as he looks completely healthy.
 
11/12/2014 10:17:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant continued his poor shooting, but scored 33 points in Wednesday's loss to New Orleans.
Insight: He was 10-of-28 from the field and 8-of-8 from the line, including 5-of-11 from deep. Bryant also had five assists, four rebounds, one steal, and one turnover. It seems he will continue to shoot poorly from the field, but nevertheless it is fun for owners to have him on fantasy teams.
 
11/11/2014 10:29:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant took 26 shots and scored 28 points against the Grizzles on Tuesday.
Insight: Despite Bryant's solid play, the Lakers continue to lose. Los Angeles is 1-5 this season. Not that fantasy owners care because Bryant had seven rebounds, six assists and four steals to go with his 26 shots.
 
11/5/2014 10:44:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant is clearly healthy early on this season.
Insight: He had a ridiculous 37 shot attempts, but made only 14. Bryant had 39 points, nine rebounds, three 3-pointers, one asisst, one steal, one block, three turnovers in 44 minutes of action. Owners should enjoy the ride.
 
11/2/2014 10:49:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant scored 28 points, but it wasn't enough as Los Angeles lost, 1127-104, against Golden State.
Insight: Bryant played 35 minutes on Friday and then 36 minutes on Saturday, so that is an excellent sign for Bryant coming off the injury from last season. Bryant also had six rebounds but hurt fantasy owners with seven turnovers.
 
11/1/2014 11:37:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant scored 21 points on Friday.
Insight: He was 6-of-15 from the field and 8-of-11 from the line, with seven assists, four rebounds, two steals, one 3-pointer, and three turnovers. Bryant looks fantastic in the season's early-going.
 
10/31/2014 1:52:00 PM
Description: One thing fantasy owners should never do is underextimate Lakers guard Kobe Bryant.
Insight: Bryant's return to the court after a "lost" season started slowly in Game 1, but he posted 31 points against Phoenix. Knocking the rust off was to be expected, but nobody has more will to succeed than Bryant.
 
10/29/2014 10:02:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant led the team with 19 points on opening night.
Insight: Bryant's return was a little disappointing to owners who bought into coach Byron Scott's claim that Bryant would play 30-to-40 minutes. The guard only played 29 minutes versus the Rockets. That, however, could have been due to the blowout on the scoreboard.
 
10/28/2014 3:52:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will play 30-40 minutes Tuesday night, according to coach Byron Scott.
Insight: That's all fantasy owners need to hear to know Kobe will be an elite fantasy option after missing 76 games last season.
 
10/25/2014 4:58:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will have a great opportunity to bounce back this season.
Insight: After playing in only six games last season, Bryant looks to be as healthy as he has been in a long time. Look for him to get back to close to his career-averages, and owners should not be afraid to select him in the second round.
 
9/29/2014 10:22:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant expects to play in the team's preseason opener on Oct. 6 after recovering from a fractured lateral tibial plateau in his left knee according to Yahoo Sports.
Insight: Los Angeles still expects Bryant to average 23 points per game. Head coach Bryon Scott said he expects Bryant to be healthy all 82 games, and if that happens, Bryant could be a fantasy steal based on where he will be picked this year.
 
4/21/2014 1:58:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reports Lakers guard Kobe Bryant (knee) has been cleared to run and shoot.
Insight: Bryant will begin a six-month program and should be ready for 2014-15. Whether we will ever see the "old" Bryant again is a question for later in his recovery. He averaged 13.8 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 6.3 apg for the six games he played this season.
 
3/12/2014 12:28:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Arash Marzaki reports Lakers guard Kobe Bryant (knee fracture) is officially out for the season.
Insight: So is Steve Nash (nerve/back issues). Bryant only played in six games this season, generating 13.8 ppg over that span. Bryant, who is expected to be back for the start of next season, turns 36 in August.

Description: The Lakers are close to ruling Kobe Bryant out for the season. SOURCE: Scooby Axson, Sports Illustrated
Insight: Bryant hasn't played since injuring his knee in mid-December. Jodie Meeks (15.3 ppg) has actually done a nice job filling in for Bryant at shooting guard. He's coming off a career-best outing Sunday against the Thunder (42 points on 11-for-18 shooting).
 
3/6/2014 9:50:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles shooting guard Kobe Bryant hasn't been cleared and the next evaluation isn't for another two weeks.
Insight: Bryant still has swelling and pain in his knee. There is no guarantee that he'll return this season.
 
2/18/2014 6:26:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles shooting guard Kobe Bryant's knee hasn't healed enough to undergo an MRI, according to Mike Trudell of lakers.com.
Insight: Bryant still has swelling and pain in his knee. He'll need to undergo an MRI before resuming any other activity.
 
1/29/2014 10:23:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles shooting guard Kobe Bryant won't be examined for at least another three weeks. He's missed 21 games with a fractured bone close to his left knee. SOURCE: Lakers on Twitter
Insight: Obviously, he's not anywhere close to returning. Bryant won't be available for the All-Star Game in two weeks, which leaves a vacant spot on the Western Conference roster.
