Kobe Bryant will likely play versus the Phoenix Suns

It appears that Los Angeles Lakers Shooting Guard Kobe Bryant's streak of missed games will end at three, with the 19-year veteran looking set to play in Sunday's home date versus the Phoenix Suns. Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News is reporting that the Lakers have upgraded Bryant's status as "probable" for the contest:

So I guess this video was NOT of Kobe counting how many games he will miss:

This is good news for all of the fans who have been eagerly awaiting Kobe's return. Was three games enough rest for the 36-year old guard? Will his minutes be managed more sensibly (i.e. reduced) upon his return to the court? Stay tuned.
