Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Says He’s Not Coming Back Against Grizzlies

The speculation continues to run rampant about Kobe Bryant’s return to the floor for the Los Angeles Lakers.

On Thursday, Kobe addressed the media once again about his return and squashed a theory about coming back against the Memphis Grizzlies on Nov. 15 according to Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times via Twitter:

With Bryant ramping up his workouts and hinting at a return sooner rather than later, the consensus seems to be the five-time NBA champion will be back on the floor at some point in November. Kobe also talked about his rehab and his current limitations via ESPN’s Dave McMenamin:

Before the 2013-14 NBA season got underway, Steve Nash said he believed Kobe would return before Thanksgiving. At this point in time, Nash’s prediction seems to be right on the money.

With 11 games left before the national holiday, Bryant might be able to get his body right in time in order to take the floor.

During that time period, the Lakers will face off against the Houston Rockets (Thursday), New Orleans Pelicans (twice), Denver Nuggets, Memphis Grizzlies, Detroit Pistons, Golden State Warriors, Golden State Warriors, Sacramento Kings and Washington Wizards.
