Kobe Bryant (knee) will be re-evaluated at the end of the road trip when the team returns to LA on either Monday or Tuesday.
As badly as the Lakers need Kobe to return, at this point they are better off as an organization if he remains out. The more ping pong balls they can have in the lottery this June the better shape they will be in when Kobe is 100% next season. ANALYST: Jeff Mans
Julio Jones did not practice Monday.
Jones is still dealing with a lingering hamstring injury and while he was able to play Sunday, there is concern this week with the short turnaround for the Thursday game. Consider him day-to-day and stay on top of all the latest news before making your final lineup decision. Analysis: Howard Bender
Cecil Shorts thinks he'll play against Jacksonville.
Shorts missed Thursday's game with a shoulder injury but both he and the team believe that he will be able to play this week. With DeAndre Hopkins being the clear-cut No. 1 and with the emergence of Jalen Strong and Keith Mumphrey, it's difficult to see Shorts getting enough work to be a productive fantasy play. He'll still see a few targets if he's on the field, but he'll be hit-or-miss. Analysis: Howard Bender
