Kobe Bryant to sit out back-to-back in Phoenix

November 16, 2015

Kobe Bryant will sit out the Los Angeles Lakers' matchup against the Phoenix Suns on Monday after playing a season-high 37 minutes in Sunday's 97-85 win over the Detroit Pistons, according to the Los Angeles Times

Bryant messed around and nearly got a triple-double, scoring 17 points, dishing out nine assists and grabbing eight rebounds.

Bryant has missed three games this season because of rest. The Lakers (2-8) are looking for their second consecutive victory for the first time this season.

Markieff Morris (knee) and former Lakers guard Ronnie Price (concussion) are questionable for the Suns.
