Kobe Bryant will be a guest on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Thursday night.

The national talk show airs on ABC at 11:35 p.m. The All-Star guard will join Dominic Monaghan and musical guest Rival Sons.

The Lakers are fresh off  an important road win in New Orleans, coming back from a 25-point deficit to take a 108-102 victory over the Hornets.

Bryant is in his 17th season, averaging 27.6 points a game on  career-high 47.5% shooting from the field.

Though the Lakers are in ninth place at 31-31, they're only 1 1/2 games behind the eighth-place Utah Jazz (technically 2 1/2 given that Utah has the head-to-head tiebreaker) in the Western Conference and two behind the seventh-place Houston Rockets.

The Lakers host the Toronto Raptors on Friday night at Staples Center.
