With video of Kobe Bryant dunking in practice this week hitting the news, many speculated that the Lakers’ star would return to action this Friday against Sacramento. But Bean fans will have to wait a little longer.
Per ESPN LA, Kobe says he will not play Friday against the Kings, but he has not ruled out a return Sunday against the Raptors.
Kobe Bryant just told me that he is NOT going to be playing Friday against Sacramento. He is not ruling out Sunday against Toronto, however
