(Kobe) Bryant confirms he has had “many conversations” during the playoffs with (Isaiah) Thomas, but says the Celtics star is just one of many current NBA stars who have reached out to him for advice.

Bryant says he also talks regularly with Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving, MVP candidates James Harden and Russell Westbrook, and Utah Jazz star Gordon Hayward, whom Bryant spent three days training with in Orange County last summer.

“I’m around for all the guys,” Bryant tells ESPN.com. “Anybody can reach out. It’s an open book.”

Boston Celtics forward Marcus Morris, a projected starter after being acquired this summer, will be sidelined for the start of the regular season while battling right knee soreness.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said Sunday that Morris will “be out here for the coming week-plus” and the team will re-evaluate him later this month to see when he might be ready for game action. Morris missed the first eight days of Celtics camp while on trial for aggravated assault in Phoenix. After being acquitted, Morris rejoined the team but played only 11 minutes in Boston’s exhibition finale in Charlotte.
