Reports out of Los Angeles are that Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant will be back in uniform and on the bench. There has been no confirmation he will actually play.
Bryant participated in his first full-contact practice this past Saturday.
“He looks like the same old Kobe, very explosive,” Lakers guard Steve Blake said.
People close to Bryant are concerned that he is “pushing himself too hard and coming back too soon.”
It will be interesting to see what Kobe returns to action, achilles injuries are hard to come back from.
Bryant tore that achilles in the final week of the 2012-13 season.
