The Golden State Warriors will face the L.A. Lakers for the final time this season and Kobe Bryant for the final time in his career today at 12:30 p.m. PST on ABC.
Bryant will be playing for the national television audience despite dealing with a shoulder injury, according to Rusty Simmons of the S.F. Chronicle.

However, with something to actually play for in the postseason, the Warriors will be sitting Andre Iguodala, who's still dealing with that nagging hamstring injury.
Kerr said there's a chance that Iguodala won't play tomorrow vs. Orlando, either. "We're just being cautious."— Rusty Simmons (@Rusty_SFChron) March 6, 2016
Simmons reports that the Warriors are just being cautious with the Warriors also facing the Orlando Magic tomorrow.
"We'll be very careful with Andre," Kerr said Saturday before the Warriors left for Los Angeles. "He's questionable, which probably leans more toward doubtful with the back-to-back. ... We've got two games in quick order here, so we've got to be smart."
Hopefully, the Warriors will be able to rest a few more vets today if they can put the Lakers away in short order.
