Analysis: Bryant hurt his right shoulder last week in New Orleans, ending his 19th NBA season. He is the third-leading scorer in league history and a five-time NBA champion. Bryant's last three seasons have ended early due to injury. If Bryant meets his surgeon's nine-month timetable, he would return shortly before the start of 2015-16 season.

The team announced Bryant's surgery Monday. He injured his shoulder last week in New Orleans.
Analysis: The Lakers say they'll announce a timetable for Bryant's recovery after surgery, but coach Byron Scott says Kobe ''is probably not going to play'' again this season. Bryant's torn rotator cuff is likely his third straight season-ending injury. He missed the 2013 playoffs with a torn Achilles tendon, and he played just six games last season before breaking a bone near his left knee.

Coach Byron Scott said Bryant will be available Tuesday night against Denver.
Analysis: Bryant returned Sunday against Phoenix and scored 10 points in 32 minutes. Before that, he missed three games around Christmas because of overall soreness. Scott said Bryant came in for treatment and stretching Tuesday morning. Scott added that Bryant will arrive for the game early to "get some shots up" and "he'll be ready to go."

|Dec. 30 8:48 PM PT9:48 PM MT10:48 PM CT11:48 PM ET4:48 GMT12:48 9:48 PM MST11:48 PM EST8:48 UAE05:4823:48 ET10:48 PM CT2:48 - Bryant had 23 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds for his 21st career triple-double, and the Los Angeles Lakers held off the Denver Nuggets 111-103 Tuesday night to end a three-game losing streak.

|Dec. 23 5:28 PM PT6:28 PM MT7:28 PM CT8:28 PM ET1:28 GMT9:28 6:28 PM MST8:28 PM EST5:28 UAE (+1)02:2820:28 ET7:28 PM CT23:28 - Bryant is back in the Los Angeles Lakers' lineup Sunday after taking three games off to rest.

Analysis: He's 11 for 45 (24.4 percent) while totaling 34 points in his last two games. He's killing your fantasy team's field-goal percentage all by himself.
|Dec. 20 9:38 PM PT10:38 PM MT11:38 PM CT12:38 AM ET5:38 GMT13:38 10:38 PM MST12:38 AM EST9:38 UAE06:380:38 ET11:38 PM CT3:38 - Bryant tied a season-low with nine points in Friday's loss to Oklahoma City.

Analysis: Bryant, who had three assists, seemed to blame his teammates afterward. "It's an up and down thing for us in terms of how we play," Bryant said. "Frustration is good. You have to be able to use your frustration in the right way and channel it to have good performances."
|Dec. 4 10:15 PM PT11:15 PM MT12:15 AM CT1:15 AM ET6:15 GMT14:15 11:15 PM MST1:15 AM EST10:15 UAE07:151:15 ET12:15 AM CT4:15 - Bryant scored 29 on 8-of-22 shooting in Wednesday's loss at Washington.
Analysis: Bryant's averaging 26.0 points on a truly abysmal 39.0 percent field-goal percentage. What may be even more surprising in his career-worst free-throw percentage of 78.7.
|Dec. 1 11:17 PM PT12:17 AM MT1:17 AM CT2:17 AM ET7:17 GMT15:17 12:17 AM MST2:17 AM EST11:17 UAE08:172:17 ET1:17 AM CT5:17 - Bryant had 31 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds for his 20th career triple-double, and the Los Angeles Lakers snapped a four-game losing streak with a 129-122 overtime victory over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night.

Analysis: Bryant faces Memphis in his next game and that kind of defense should stifle the aging veteran. Don't expect him to be gun-shy so upwards of 30 shots - mostly misses - can be expected.
|Nov. 20 9:12 PM PT10:12 PM MT11:12 PM CT12:12 AM ET5:12 GMT13:12 10:12 PM MST12:12 AM EST9:12 UAE06:120:12 ET11:12 PM CT3:12 - Bryant had 29 points and matched a season high with seven assists Wednesday night.

Analysis: Bryant oddly turned in an efficient effort with 18 shots, though he 'took over' in the fourth quarter as he was 4 of 8 for nine points as the Lakers allowed a 10-point lead to be cut to two while the superstar hogged the ball.
|Nov. 16 8:47 PM PT9:47 PM MT10:47 PM CT11:47 PM ET4:47 GMT12:47 9:47 PM MST11:47 PM EST8:47 UAE05:4723:47 ET10:47 PM CT2:47 - Bryant went off for 44 points in Sunday's loss to Golden State.

|Nov. 9 8:13 PM PT9:13 PM MT10:13 PM CT11:13 PM ET4:13 GMT12:13 9:13 PM MST11:13 PM EST8:13 UAE05:1323:13 ET10:13 PM CT2:13 - Bryant scored 21 points with six rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers rallied to beat the Charlotte Hornets 107-92 Sunday night for their first victory of the season after five straight losses.
Analysis: Bryant made 7 of 20 shots in an unsurprising poor shooting effort. He's shooting 39.4 percent but that won't stop him from firing up more blanks.
|Oct. 30 10:45 PM PT11:45 PM MT12:45 AM CT1:45 AM ET5:45 GMT13:45 10:45 PM MST12:45 AM EST9:45 UAE06:451:45 ET11:45 PM CT3:45 - Bryant had 31 points in a 119-99 loss to Phoenix on Wednesday night.

Analysis: Bryant turns 36 next month and is under contract with the Los Angeles Lakers for two more years. He was limited to just six games last season because of two major leg injuries, leaving him with the kind of idle time he never had before in his career.
