Kobe Bryant Hopes To Face Raptors On Sunday

Lakers_Kobe_Bryant_2013Kobe Bryant continues to hone in his aim toward a return date after spending nearly eight months sidelined following Achilles surgery.

The Los Angeles Lakers’ home game against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday is his latest target.

“I’m trying,” Bryant said after practice Thursday when asked specifically about the Toronto game. “We got to see how it feels tonight. I’m going to try to get another hard session in and then [Friday] morning try to push it again and the same thing tomorrow evening. Continue to just keep on measuring it.”

Bryant plans to stay back in Los Angeles when the Lakers visit the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.
