After missing the last two games in order to get more rest, Kobe Bryant may return to the floor against the visiting Miami Heat on Tuesday night at the Staples Center.

Although Kobe wasn’t given the green light after Lakers practice on Monday, the team has listed the five-time NBA champion as questionable for Tuesday’s game, according to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News:

Bryant missed the last two games against the Orlando Magic and Portland Trail Blazers. Jeremy Lin and newcomer Tarik Black were able to lead the Lakers to victory over the Magic while Damian Lillard proved to be too much to handle on Sunday night.

Heading into Tuesday’s matchup against Dwyane Wade and company, Bryant is averaging 23.0 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game. Kobe is currently shooting a career-low percentage of 37.5, but has taken a more passive approach as of late.

The Lakers have lost seven of their last 10 games and will try to advantage of a Miami squad that hasn’t done much better winning only four of their last 10. Wade is putting up similar numbers in comparison to Bryant averaging 22.8 points and 5.6 assists per game, but is shooting a much better percentage at 49.6.
