Kobe Bryant certainly played very well Thursday night and was in fine spirits after the game. But he also took nearly a full hour after the game ended to meet with reporters — easily a season-high delay — primarily because he was getting what he referred to as “maintenance” work done by rehabilitation specialist Judy Seto before meeting the rest of the team for the flight to Portland.

Bryant donned a protective sleeve over his right knee for the game against Denver, even though he said after the game Tuesday night in Sacramento that his overall health was good. Bryant had surgery on that right knee in 2006, hyperextended it in an October exhibition in San Diego this season and periodically has dealt with knee tendinitis.

Just something to keep an eye on amid the Lakers’ joy — and Andrew Bynum’s especially refreshing individual joy — over how well another right knee (Bynum’s) held up in the victory over the Nuggets.

I agree, but since every game we play is like a game 7 for the opposition, it's hard for us to get blowouts so that he CAN rest, plus of course, every game still has meaning right now as we're handling our business and hoping of course Cleveland can lose at least one.

Kobe is such a warrior. He definitely deserve all the rest he can get this offseason.

Definitely one of the toughest players I've seen, along with Allen Iverson.

No doubt. I'll never forget when he seperated his shoulder only to go out there and shoot j's with his left in '04.

Sadly, AI isn't so tough anymore. The man wants to retire.

Nah, he just wants out of Detroit. I'd be amazed if Iverson retired right now.

The thing about AI is that he'll still take it to the rim, against anyone, even if he gets swatted. He's dropped off a bit as an offensive player, but the man is still tough. He just needs to be a primary option with defenders surrounding him (ex. Charlotte).

Hopefully in some of the next few games he can get some extra rest. Unfortunately, I don't think he'll be getting much in tonight's game.

Now that HCA is gone, Kobe needs to rest along with Pau and Fisher.

I agree. No sense in risking injury or playing meaningless minutes at this point of the season.

Get rested and focus on what's really important: the first round of the playoffs.

They need to get some extra rest before the playoffs. Bynum should use these games to get himself back into rhythm.
