Mike D’Antoni Sees Kobe Returning Healthy and Strong


If there is one player that can successfully return from a torn Achilles and a knee fracture, it’s Kobe Bryant.

Bryant already surpassed expectations by hitting the court again after the Achilles injury, and now it’s time to prove his doubters wrong once again. It is expected that Kobe will be sidelined for six weeks, and although it is hard seeing him return earlier, that does not mean he will be unable to play at an elite level.

Coach Mike D’Antoni spoke to the Los Angeles Times and he talked about what he expects from Kobe this time around. D’Antoni expressed confidence in his star player to be back in the lineup with a winning mentality.

“He’s a tough guy,” he said.  “I think he’ll be back in six weeks and he’ll be hunting for some bear.”

Bryant played only six games this season, but he was showing signs of finally getting back into basketball shape. The Lakers players had trouble at first in adjusting to life with Kobe Bryant, however, they were beginning to settle into their roles.

Now, the injury plagued Lakers will have to continue to compete in the Western Conference without Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar for several more weeks.
