Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Needs Two More Weeks Of Conditioning To Return


The Los Angeles Lakers received some good news heading into the matchup with the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night with news of Kobe Bryant starting to ramp up training once again.

According to Serena Winters, Kobe has begun aggressively running:

With Kobe missing the season opener against the Los Angeles Clippers and sitting out the game against the Golden State Warriors the following night, the speculation has kicked into high gear once again in terms of a return date for the five-time NBA champion.

Before the season got underway, two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash believed a realistic return date for Bryant would be before Thanksgiving. Although Kobe returning sometime between now and the November holiday may be realistic, it still remains uncertain if it will happen.

Recently, Kobe created yet another media frenzy changing his Twitter avatar to “1225″ shortly after being ranked the 25th best player in the NBA. Kobe claims, jokingly, that the avatar change was for his dog’s birthday. Many believe the change was due to ESPN predicting the Lakers finishing 12th in the Western Conference and Kobe being only ranked 25th among the best of the best in the league.

Another theory is that Kobe will return on Christmas Day in order to face the two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat and dropped a hint with the new Twitter avatar.

    There’s no doubt that Kobe will train hard and be in good condition. He’s known for that. However, the issue is: can he be ready to play without affecting the injury if he comes back and plays at a high level?

    If he believes he is physically ready, but if it’s too soon to protect the injury, then it’s not good. It’s better for him to wait until everything is ‘really ready’ to go. I’m sure his doctors and trainers know best, but we all know Kobe is ‘determined’. Unfortunately, his determination may not be enough to prevent further injury.

    Just take your time, Kobe. Get it ready enough to play, but please take it easy. We don’t want a repeat of the last game of the year last season.

      Agreed, nothing would make me happier seeing Kobe on the court but, he should take his time. 3 weeks would be about Thanksgiving week which would be great but I think he should rest it more and play near New Years/ Christmas.

      Better be safe than sorry
