The Los Angeles Lakers stay locked in the 29th spot in the ESPN.com Power Rankings this week.

Here's what Marc Stein had to say:

"If Tim Duncan can make it back to work this week, Kobe Bryant's nostalgia tour should resume immediately out of the All-Star break Friday night with what is scheduled to be the 52nd and final regular-season meeting between Kobe and Timmy. Who can forget that their teams met in four consecutive postseasons from 2001 to '04 ... with the woebegone Lakers winning three of those series?"
