Kobe Bryant created a bit of a stir early this week when he tweeted out the hashtag “#bearhunt”. Fans thought and hoped that Bryant was hinting at a return date against the Grizzlies on Friday November 15. However, while talking to reporters on Thursday night, he gave more insight on his return.

 

 

 

Assuming Bryant finishes this week and next of rehab, Bryant would still likely need more playing time. A realistic return could have him back against Golden State on Friday, November 22. It would be a sweet bit of unity, considering that Bryant tore his Achilles against the Warriors.

 

Nevertheless, Bryant will likely be back before December, and Lakers fans mouths are already watering.
