12/15/2014 9:18:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant scored a team-high 21 points during Monday's loss to the Pacers.
Insight: He was dreadful from the field, going 8-of-26. Bryant also had four rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, two steals, and three turnovers.
 
12/13/2014 9:30:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant scored 22 points during Friday's overtime win against the Spurs.
Insight: He played point guard down the stretch and for most of the extra session. Bryant finished with nine assists, five rebounds, four steals, one 3-pointer, and five turnovers in 40 minutes of action.
 
12/10/2014 9:19:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant shot a percentage higher than his season average on Tuesday.
Insight: That's not saying much because Bryant is shooting 39 percent from the floor this season, and on Tuesday he shot 40.7 percent. Still, owners will take the 32 points. Bryant is leading the league with 25.5 ppg.
 
12/5/2014 9:51:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant nearly outshot all the other Los Angeles starters combined on Friday.
Insight: Bryant took 21 shots, making nine of them on his way to 22 points. Bryant is leading the league in scoring, but he doesn't give fantasy owners anything else, and he shoots a poor percentage.
 
12/3/2014 9:31:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant continued to score a lot and take a lot of shots on Wednesday.
Insight: Bryant finished with 29 points, but he shot just 36 percent from the field and 33 percent from the 3-point line. Bryant is not providing much else, and on Wednesday he had four rebounds, three assists and a steal. If owners need lots of points, Bryant is the man, but he won't provide much else.
 
12/2/2014 1:44:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant missed the morning shootaround, but is expected to play Tuesday in detroit.
Insight: The team is likely just trying to manage the 36-year-old's workload. He is averaging 26.6 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 4.6 apg, and 1.4 spg playing almost 36 minutes per night.
 
11/29/2014 9:52:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant scored a team-high 26 points in a loss Friday against the Timberwolves.
Insight: He shot 10-of-18 from the field and 6-of-10 from the line. Bryant also had five rebounds, five assists, five steals, and two turnovers. He is averaging 26.4 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 4.1 apg, and 1.4 spg.
 
11/27/2014 11:14:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant went 10-of-10 from the free throw in during Wednesday's loss to the Grizzlies.
Insight: He was also 5-of-15 and 2-of-5 from deep for 22 points. Bryant also had four rebounds, two assists, and four turnovers.
 
11/22/2014 4:42:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant did not practice on Saturday.
Insight: There shouldn't really be a cause for concern. Coach Byron Scott said Bryant needed the rest for what he called "heavy legs." We agree after seeing him miss his first 12 shots on Friday versus the Mavericks. Bryant should be ready to go on Sunday.
 
11/22/2014 9:12:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant shot just 27 percent on Friday as he continues to chuck up shots.
Insight: Bryant is averaging 25.5 shot attempts per game in November and 24.0 for the season. He obviously feels the pressure to score a lot due to the lack of talent on the Lakers. That means big numbers most nights, but occasionally he is going to be off and his percentage will suffer a lot.
 
11/20/2014 9:13:00 AM
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.
