Vladimir Radmanovic did not play again because of a strained right calf.
His injury also has put a strain on the Lakers' bench.
Coach Phil Jackson used only three reserves in Sunday afternoon's overtime victory over the Dallas Mavericks at Staples Center.
Sasha Vujacic scored eight points in 32 minutes, Jordan Farmar had three points in 28minutes and Ronny Turiaf was scoreless in 12 minutes.
Radmanovic is expected to travel to Sacramento with the Lakers after today's practice, and it's possible he could play Tuesday night against the Kings. It's one of only three games this week for the Lakers, who also play host to the Clippers on Friday.
"The problem is I'm playing Kobe (Bryant) and Lamar (Odom) longer minutes," Jackson said. "That's a little bit tougher. So there is some concern. I'm happy we have a break this week (with only three games). I'm real happy Radmanovic is coming back."
Bryant played 51 minutes and Odom played 48 against Dallas, season highs for each player.
Bryant is averaging 38 minutes this season and Odom is averaging 37, less than each averaged last season.
"I'm fine," Bryant said of playing big minutes Sunday. "I told (Jackson) I could have gone the whole way. I really feel fine. This season my minutes are down. At this point in time in the season, I feel fantastic."
Said Odom: "Who cares? So what if I'm tired? It doesn't matter. You just keep going. I mean, of course, the strength of our team is our depth. When that's taken away, that's a little bit of our strength taken away. We still found a way to win."
Bryant by numbers: Bryant scored a season-high 52 points, the 22nd time in his career that he's scored 50 or more in a game. He moved past Walt Bellamy into 25th place on the NBA's all-time scoring list with 20,941 points.
He also scored 22 points in the fourth quarter, including 18 of the Lakers' final 20 points in the fourth. He also had their final 14 in the period. He then scored eight of their 15 points during overtime.
"We gave him a single look," Dallas coach Avery Johnson said. "Then we double-teamed him. Then we triple-teamed him and he split the triple team and scored. ... We tried to zone him. We tried to funnel him into the trap for a zone and he went the other way, so he didn't co-operate on any of our defenses.
"He has these nights, lots of these nights."
Taking notice: There are Lakers fans everywhere in Southern California, of course, but they seem to be in greater numbers since the team returned from its nine-game trip in mid-February. Jackson said he doesn't need to speak to the players about dealing with fans during the course of the day. He and the players are used to the interaction.
"It reaches every level of your life when you come back to L.A.," Jackson said. "I went to the gas station and ending up signing four autographs while I was pumping gas, so it was one of those things."
