I think Kobe needs to sit and let the ankle heal. I understand his mindset of wanting to play and help this team win as every game is crucial. I love the dedication and commitment he shows by even trying to play. However I feel the team could also benefit from his absence especially Dwight and Nash. More responsibility on them is a good thing as well the rest of the team who all have to step up and shoulder the load without Kobe. It allows them to build a synergy and confidence in themselves to not rely on Kobe. Luckily these games are against sub par teams so their is no reason he couldn't miss a couple games. While any remaining game is crucial I believe we don't deserve to make the playoffs if we cant beat these lower teams mimus Kobe anyway. Just seen he is sitting the Sacremento game out so thats good. Rest up 24, do some coaching from the sideline and get that ankle better for the playoffs.
