It’s Sports “Illustrated,” for pete’s sake.

Byron says Kobe had complained of sore shoulder as long as six weeks ago. But Kobe said it was fine once he got it warmed up.

Mike Bresnahan

Byron predicting successful return for Kobe if he needs surgery: "I know he doesn't want to go out this way."

Mike Bresnahan

Kobe had complained about shoulder soreness a month-and-a-half ago, Byron said.

Mike Bresnahan

Byron texted Kobe, apologized for using him so much earlier in the season. Kobe responded with a "Don't worry about it," Byron said.

Bill Oram

Byron Scott said possible link of heavy minutes early on to Kobe’s injury “Almost made me sick.” Apologized via text to Bryant.

Mike Bresnahan

Byron on Kobe's torn rotator cuff: "Yeah, I'm worried. The whole organization's worried." Still waiting to hear severity of injury.

Detroit, once 5-23, has a realistic opportunity to finish as a seven seed. Maybe even a six, if the Bucks slump. Gotta love the East. BK

With Kobe on the shelf, I'm throwing my energy behind a vociferous appreciation of the Carlos Boozer Backpedal, best in the NBA. BK

Them dudes motivate themselves "@MarkEomurian: @Beto Duran Kobe uses it. Shaq used it. Kareem used it."

Beto Duran

Save it. All teams get new fans. "@clipperdeezee77: Angel fans became "Angel" fans in October 2002 fact!"

Beto Duran

If need media to motivate, you are weak. "@MarkEomurian: plenty of players use media jabs as motivation. "

Beto Duran

Twitter telling me that Angels fans are Clippers fans. Don't know if I agree.

Half: Clippers 70, Nets 37. Blake has 22 pts on 10 for 13 shooting. DJ has 12 pts on 6 for 6 shooting and 11 rebounds. CP has 12 assists.

Chris Paul has nine assists, more than the Nets combined (six) with 3:25 left in the first half. Not an All-Star? Really?

DeAndre Jordan with the dunk. Austin Rivers with the reaction. vine.co/v/OIIuFdzQJO0

Ramona Shelburne

No fear w/in Lakers at this time that Kobe retires. If anything, the opposite is true. He's more likely to come back next year bc of this

Arash Markazi

Ronny Turiaf is sitting behind the Clippers bench tonight.

Ramona Shelburne

Final determination on that will be made by Laker team doctors on Friday, but fear w/in org tonight is that he does need the surgery.

Ramona Shelburne

Kobe will miss the rest of the season if he needs surgery, sources said. There is strong concern within the organization that is the case.

Kobe's rotator cuff tear is in his shooting shoulder. Rest & rehab over surgery may have been an easier alternative if that wasn't the case.

No. I think he'll be back next season either way. RT @Lakersforlife08 @Arash Markazi do you think there's a possibility of him calling quits?

Arash Markazi

If Kobe needs surgery on his torn rotator cuff he would be out 6 months and miss the season. The Lakers will know if that's the plan Friday.

Pretty straightforward: If Kobe needs surgery, he's done for the year. That'll officially be determined by the Laker team docs tomorrow

Ramona Shelburne

Kobe first injured this shoulder in the preseason, according to sources. Has been playing w/ it all year. It just got worse last night
