SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Lakers coach Phil Jackson says he's not expecting Kobe Bryant to play Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz.
Jackson said after Wednesday's shoot-around that it's not looking good for Bryant to return to the lineup when the Lakers play the Jazz at EnergySolutions Arena. Officially, Bryant is still listed as questionable with a sore left ankle.
He has missed the last two games.
Bryant's status for Sunday's All-Star game is also still uncertain.
Jackson says the Lakers will also probably be without Andrew Bynum, who has a bruised right hip.
