Black Mamba has been out for a while . . . and will sit out for the rest of this season

USA TODAY Sports

Kobe Bryant, the Los Angeles Lakers icon, will sit out the rest of the season.

As we know form the "While you were Sleeping" feature, the Lakers are 22-42, and tied for fourth with the Utah Jazz, Sacramento Kings, and Boston Celtics. LA has 18 games remaining this season, with 10 of them against the "bottom 20" teams in the league. There are five other games left this season against the worst five.

Some of the games they'll "play" that we care about will be against: the Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors, Memphis Grizzlies, Milwaukee Bucks, Minnesota Timberwolves, New York KNicks, Orlando Magic, Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings -- and one against us, the Utah Jazz.

Happy Tanksgiving!
