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
Michael Brantley (back) has returned to the Indians' lineup Sunday.
Brantley was out of the lineup as precaution and now seems to be 100 percent healthy. Brantley was one of the most improved players last season, which has greatly increased his fantasy value as some people are drafting him in the second or third round in fantasy drafts. He'll have to have another strong season in order to return value on that high of a draft pick. Analysis: Mark Kaplan
