Los Angeles Lakers (42-14) vs Memphis Grizzlies (28-27)

8:00 PM ET, February 23, 2010 -- FedExForum, Memphis, TN

After missing five games with an ankle injury, Kobe Bryant is expected to play tonight for the Lakers. It will be his 1,000th career regular season game - every one coming in a Lakers uniform. In franchise history, only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar played more games for the Lakers. Bryant could break the record during the 2010-11 season. Kobe will become the youngest player in NBA history to reach the 1000-game mark. Bryant, who has played 999 games to date, is 31 years, 184 days old - almost a full year younger than the current record-holder, Kevin Garnett (32 years, 165 days), was at the time of his 1,000th NBA game. Memphis PF Zach Randolph leads the Grizzlies in scoring, averaging 20.4 ppg.
