Kobe Bryant will return to action tonight against the Phoenix Suns, according to Lakers head coach Byron Scott. The 36-year-old SG is coming off 3 games rest, including a Christmas day absence.

According to Scott, the Lakers will try to manage his playing time around 30 minutes tonight. Given recent quotes by Kobe and Scott, look for Kobe's offensive role to change somewhat from the last time we saw him.

Lakers take on the Suns tonight at 6:30 PT.
