Watch Kobe Bryant sprint, shoot mid-range jumpers
When will Kobe Bryant get back on the court?
While there’s still no time frame, the Lakers All-Star continues to ramp up his activity as he works his way back from an Achilles’ tendon injury.
Before Friday’s exhibition game in Shanghai against the Golden State Warriors, Kobe Bryant got in some on-court sprints.

Bryant was injured on April 12 in a win over the Warriors. He had surgery the following morning.

The Lakers start the regular season Oct. 29 at home against the Clippers. Although it seems unlikely that Bryant will be back for opening night, recent progress suggests Thanksgiving might be a reasonable guess for his return.
