There have been interesting developments regarding Kobe Bryant and the injury to his right Achilles’ tendon that forced him out of Tuesday night’s game late in the second quarter.

Lakers Coach Bryon Scott said after practice Wednesday that Bryant said he was “feeling better” and that Scott would list his small forward as questionable, probable and a game-time decision for Thursday night’s game at Golden State.

Then Scott raised some eyebrows when he said Lakers athletic trainer Gary Vitti wants to shut down Bryant for a week or two to let the injury heal, but Scott said Bryant would be against that idea.
