#24 Kobe Bryant
Oct 22: Bryant will not play in the Lakers' final two preseason contests, the teams' official site reports. Bryant has scored 26 or more points in each of his past three preseason contests, so it appears he's getting back to old form. He'll sit Wednesday and Friday night, but return to the lineup for Tuesday's season opener. The 36-year-old is entering his 18th NBA season, so there's little reason to push the veteran to participate in exhibition contests.
