Kobe Bryant to Rest More During Practices

Byron Scott said he wants to start resting Kobe Bryant more during practice days to preserve the Los Angeles Lakers star for games, where Scott would like to keep playing Bryant between 30 to 40 minutes.

Scott, the Lakers coach, said Bryant did light shooting and little else during practice here Monday. Scott added that Bryant would have a similar off-day Tuesday in advance of Wednesday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

The move to rest Bryant more during practices — a tactic that Bryant has done several times in previous seasons — comes after Bryant has mentioned his legs feeling heavy after recent games, which Bryant said had affected his shooting.
