Kobe Bryant to play against Charlotte Bobcats
Kobe Bryant, who missed the Lakers' morning shootaround because of chills and aches, will play Monday night against the Charlotte Bobcats, a team representative said.
Bryant was seen walking into the locker room before the game with his workout gear on.
Bryant and the Lakers are playing their sixth game on their seven-game trip that concludes in Cleveland on Wednesday.
The Lakers are 4-1 on the trip, losing in Orlando on Sunday.
Bryant hasn't missed a game this season, averaging 25.4 points in 55 games.
