Lakers News And Rumors Recap: Kobe Is Inching Closer To A Return


IFWT_Kobe-FloydAs we all know Kobe has been working non-stop on his physical therapy in preparation to get himself back to basketball form. Taking little tidbits of motivation anywhere he can to really fuel his fire. Everyone has been speculating whether or not Kobe Bryant would play when it came to the tip-off on the NBA Season. Well speculate no further, as we have word from the Bryant himself on his own guesstimate return timetable.

As of right now, Kobe Bryant is at least three more weeks of physical therapy away from practicing with his Laker squad, so that answers our question of whether or not he would be available for the season opener since the NBA Season is only two weeks away.
