Bryant registered 21 points (9-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, an assist and two blocks over 25 minutes Wednesday against Orlando.
Bryant has been held in check of late, scoring just 10 points over his last two games. He managed to turn his play around Wednesday, however, knocking down 75.0 percent of his field goals and cleaning up on the boards. Bryant is averaging 9.8 points through seven contests in March, which is just above his 9.6 ppg average on the season.
Bryant tallied just nine points, four rebounds, and one block in 20 minutes during Sunday's 135-121 victory over the Timberwolves.
Bryant failed to deliver for those that may have streamed him in Sunday, ending with just nine points in 20 minutes. That makes two subpar games for Bryant who had been playing well prior. Despite the upside, Bryant's role is too inconsistent to warrant a permanent roster spot. He could be used as a blocks streamer in certain situations but that is about the limit of his value right now, outside of deeper formats.
Bryant compiled 18 points (6-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-8 FT), five rebounds, three assists and a block across 20 minutes Wednesday against Brooklyn.
Bryant put together another efficient shooting performance, hitting on 60.0 percent of his field goals while draining six of eight attempts from the charity stripe. He's reached double digits in the scoring department in three of his previous five matchups, and he's shooting the ball at a clip of 55.6 percent over that span. Although Bryant's season scoring average sits at 9.8 ppg (50 games), his stock appears to be on the rise.
Bryant exploded for 23 points (9-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists, three blocks, and two steals in 31 minutes during Saturday's 119-112 loss to the Pacers.
Bryant is no stranger to incredibly efficient outings, as he has turned in some absolutely stellar performances this season. However, this was easily his most well-rounded showing (matched career highs in assists, blocks, and steals) despite the fact that he came off the bench behind Bobby Portis. Bryant now has eight double-doubles through 50 appearances this season and has improved tremendously, but he's still pretty inconsistent overall.
Bryant will come off the bench Saturday against the Pacers, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Bobby Portis has apparently impressed coach Scott Brooks, and he'll draw the start over Bryant. The change likely won't affect Bryant's workload much, as he has only been seeing 17.6 minutes per game over the past five contests, averaging 9.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists.
