Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott says he expects Kobe Bryant to play Tuesday night against Denver after sitting out the last game with a sore right shoulder.

Scott says Bryant will arrive at Pepsi Center a little earlier than normal to "get some shots up." He cautioned Bryant not to take too many shots, though, just enough to "see how it feels and to gauge where the pain is, if there's any. But he said he's definitely 100 percent ready to go."

Bryant didn't play in Oklahoma City on Saturday, two days after dunking for the first time this season against Houston.

The 37-year-old Bryant leads the team in scoring at 16.7 points per game. He announced last month he was retiring after the season.
