KEVIN DING @KevinDing - Kobe ruled out for tomorrow vs. Spurs. Improved shin, but not enough.
KEVIN DING @KevinDing - Perspective on Kobe's shin: He usually plays when he could play. But if he doesn't rest this properly, condition will just return.
KEVIN DING @KevinDing - Sessions said sprained left shoulder definitely improving and jammed right index finger was also until being hit yesterday.
KEVIN DING @KevinDing - Early warning to Andrew Bynum (and Tim Duncan, remembering 2007): Fiery ref Joey Crawford is on my flight to San Antonio now.
Standing: Clippers are playing Oklahoma but Memphis has only one more loss than us and an easier schedule. Also they are't missing their star. Better to slip to fourth seed and rest Kobe although that would put us against Memphis in the first round as things fall right now.
