Kobe Bryant missed the last game on the road for the Los Angeles Lakers with the superstar staying in Los Angeles while his team faced the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City. The Lakers will now embark on a three-game road trip against the Phoenix Suns, New Orleans Pelicans and San Antonio Spurs with Bryant traveling with the team.

Although Bryant will be traveling with the Lakers for the three games on the road, the superstar guard most likely won’t play in all three games away from the Staples Center, according to head coach Byron Scott via Janis Carr of the OC Register:

Bryant was been listed as doubtful for Monday’s game against the Suns, but that could change. It seems more likely that he’d get back on the floor on Wednesday against the Pelicans and possibly play against the Spurs on Friday.

The next game at the Staples Center will come next Sunday with Dwight Howard returning to Los Angeles to take on the Lakers for the first time since the first game of the season back on Oct. 28.

Hopefully, Bryant will be good to go for rematch against Dwight and company. Their last meeting between the two former teammates in Los Angeles wasn’t pretty with the two getting into an altercation not to mention rookie Julius Randle suffering a season-ending leg injury.
