Last month, members of the Los Angeles Lakers' front office met to discuss whether Kobe Bryant should take a leave of absence from the team during the regular season. The discussion centered on whether the toll of Bryant's ongoing trial in Colorado combined with playing was affecting the All-Star guard to the point where he needed to rest.

Bryant is facing trial in Eagle, Colo., on sexual assault charges and missed a recent game to attend a pretrial hearing. He claims the sex was consensual.

Part of the proposed leave would have been punitive as well, sources told Aldridge, because Bryant had been late for several practices earlier in the season. However, no consensus was reached on what to do, and the matter was shelved.

Despite missing 17 games this season, Bryant is averaging more minutes played (36.6 per game) and points (22.9) than any other Laker. Currently, Bryant is the seventh leading scorer in the NBA.

I don't think he'd be very happy if they made him stop playing, so no.

i dont think any player would be happy if they found out that they weren't going to be playing for the rest of the season, that is a big blow, but maybe its something that needs to be done?
