Kobe Happy

After a successful three-game road trip, the Los Angeles Lakers returned home early this morning. With head coach Mike D’Antoni saying that the Lakers would not practice until December 3 and it would be difficult to see Kobe Bryant returning during this time, the team actually had practice on Saturday morning.

With Bryant needing more time to measure his game, D’Antoni revealed after practice that the five-time champion will not play against the Portland Trail Blazers tomorrow according to Lakers reporter Mike Trudell:

While he only participated in 5-0 drills, a return is near and Bryant may possibly play this Friday against the Sacramento Kings:

With four days off between the Portland and Sacramento games, it will give Bryant the practice time he needs to measure what he’ll be able to do and adapt to his limitations after the Achilles rupture. While Bryant once saw himself playing by the end of November, the Lakers’ play has likely given him more time.

While most thought the Lakers would be out of the playoffs, they have played well together and were able to get above the .500 mark with the victory against the Detroit Pistons last night. With Bryant’s return near, the Lakers should be able to win more games with their best closer ready to lead them to the playoffs and beyond.

    Good news, although I think Kobe should take it easy and come back whenever he feels 100%.

    Also, if he does come back he should be limited to 10~15 minutes and gradually increasing his minutes I think at max till 25 per game would be great…Unless 4th quarter he has to go mamba mode

    Sucks we can’t comment with our Facebook information, anyways..
    I just hope Kobe doesn’t rush it to come back, I wouldn’t want him missing the rest of the season with a mild injury that can set him back
