Mike D’Antoni Doesn’t Anticipate Kobe Returning By Thanksgiving

Kobe 7

Since speaking last week, Kobe Bryant has not updated the media on his latest condition. While Bryant has done some light shooting lately, head coach Mike D’Antoni shared that Bryant is progressing well but there’s no timetable for his return.

Before tonight’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies, D’Antoni revealed that he does not anticipate Bryant coming back before Thanksgiving according to Lakers Nation’s Serena Winters:

After revealing that his Achilles is healed and is currently working on regaining mobility in his ankle, Bryant blacked out his Twitter avatar earlier this month. To most, it signaled a return was near and Bryant later informed the media that he needs about three weeks of vigorous training.

While everyone is counting down the number of weeks, Bryant wants to return at a high-level and has no personal timetable. With so much skepticism surrounding Bryant due to the severity of the injury and his age, he wants to ensure that those opinions don’t become facts.

Without Bryant likely not returning by Thanksgiving, since he has only been able to shoot on his tip-toes at this point, the Lakers will need to stay above water and hope Bryant will return soon. The Lakers are currently 4-6 and have a nice home stand to get back above the .500 mark.

    IMO, Late Dec. early January, no rush.

    • Matt Williams

      I agree.

        I agree too but if the team keeps losing especially close games they should win it makes Kobe the fighter want to return earlier to not be in such a big hole.

        Hopefully they win the next 3 home games.

    Thanks LN, for always finding the unhappiest picture of Kobe every time you announce a delay in his return.

    I say he should comeback whenever he can.Just thinking about the current state of the Lakers makes me feel numb sometime.It’s a numbing feeling to see Kobe helpless as he is recovering from a very serious injury.Kobe had surgery and he is still not sure how he will play once he comes back and nobody and i mean nobody is saying exactly when he will be back.Just numbing.I hope he does come on back this season but we shall see when.

    I’m guess Christmas time, and what a welcome Christmas / New Years gift that would be because Kobe is CLEARLY the missing ingredient that’s keeping this good team from being a great team.
