Lakers hope Kobe Bryant can play 20-minute range next season
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:15 pm ET) Lakers coach Byron Scott said that he hopes guard Kobe Bryant can play in the 20-minute range next season, the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

"For Kobe, play him at mid to low 20s minute wise," Scott said. "But you have to have some horses to be able to do that. ... A lot of it depends on what guys we bring in as well. I got to wait until August until we have a good idea of what we’ve brought in and who we bring back. Then, we go from there."

Scott added that he isn't concerned with Bryant's body breaking down as he works his way back from a torn rotator cuff, his third serious injury in the last three seasons.

"I don’t have concern right now," Scott said. "We obviously have to wait until it’s all done and we go through the rehab and all that and see how he feels. The biggest thing with Kobe is as long as you guys are saying that he’s done, he’s going to come back. That’s the biggest thing with him. He proved this year that he has a lot left in the tank and is still one of the best players in this league. If you guys keep saying he’s done, that’ll help him as well."

Bryant was scheduled to undergo surgery on his injured shoulder Wednesday.
