The Lakers appear patient about Kobe Bryant's recovery from a sore left shin so that he's healthy for the playoffs. Meanwhile, it has prompted Coach Mike Brown to start Devin Ebanks, who has spent most of the season out of the rotation, at shooting guard.
"Hopefully when Kobe comes back," Ebanks said, "Coach will still have me in the rotation to play."...
SAN ANTONIO Kobe Bryant was in a playful mood Wednesday night, telling reporters he didn't miss them at all during his seven-game injury absence.

It has been the latest rage among some fans and local...

Kings game earlier this week, speculation was stronger than ever that a reconciliation between Kobe and Vanessa Bryant may be in the works.

Kobe Bryant, who missed his seventh straight game Wednesday with a shin injury, is eyeing a Friday return for the Los Angeles Lakers after completing running and jumping exercises without pain.

One of the knocks on the Los Angeles Lakers entering this season was their lack of a solid point guard.
Derek Fisher wasn't going to cut it anymore due to his age and is now with the Thunder after a trade. Steve Blake wasn't what the Lakers wanted in a point guard, and of course we all know what happened to that potential deal to acquire Chris Paul.
In the end, the Lakers...
