Kobe Bryant still hasn't practiced since he sprained the ankle. He did play though against the Magic Monday and has had a solid four days of rest. He's been rehabbing the ankle but with a less than big game against the Timberwolves Friday, Phil Jackson said Kobe could potentially sit.
"He might," Jackson told ESPN Los Angeles . "We'll just see. We'll see how it is tomorrow and we'll go from there."
The Orange County Register reports that Kobe should play as he's said the ankle is feeling better, but if the game is out of hand, I'm sure Kobe won't be seeing any extra minutes. And you never know, Jackson could decide to rest Kobe anyway.
