With the regular season opener between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers aka Battle L.A. being about a month away, Bryant’s status is still up in the air.

You don’t want to rush a great player like Kobe to return to action right away. You want to wait until he is 100 percent, if not 110 percent just to make sure he won’t tweak the injury again. The other day, Kobe ran on a treadmill at 75 percent of his body weight, which is great news.

Now according to the Los Angeles Daily News, Bryant hopes to be running at a full 100 percent in the next few weeks. Which gives us an idea that he may not be ready for the opening tip off against the Clippers. Which is fine, a week won’t hurt the Lakers if Bryant sits out.

The season will be fresh and Bryant will still be rehabbing the injury. The longer Kobe waits, the hungrier the man will get which usually results in him lighting up the scoreboard.

This is great news for not only the fans, but for the organization.
