Kobe questionable against the Timberwolves?

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.

He won't be playing. It's too good of a chance to give him some rest.

Kobe has been a half step slow all season, and add a bad ankle to the mix, and it will make it even more difficult to perform at his best.  If this was against a playoff contendor, wild horses couldn't keep him away.  But, this is a against a team they should do well against. 

My vote...  Definitely sit him for a game.  Give him the full week off and re-evaluate on Sunday.

You sure are right. He reacts too much on adrenaline and should sometimes be more patient as it extends a player's career. For example those fingers may have healed had he had surgery on them,

But I guess he wants to gimp his body

Yeah right Phil. If his foot is still attached to his leg he's playing. I've never seen a basketball player so determined (stubborn, stupid or just plain irresponsible) to play as Kobe. He is what he is. I just hope he comes out thinking about getting others involved and being a decoy because if he puts his mind to it he could easily get doble digit assists.
