Lakers Rumors & News Recap: Kobe’s Timetable Remains Uncertain

Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles LakersThe 2013-14 NBA season is rapidly approaching with only 48 days left before the Los Angeles Lakers square off against their division rival, the Los Angeles Clippers, at Staples Center.

With the first game of the season right around the corner, the speculation continues about when Kobe Bryant will be ready to return to the floor for the Lakers. Although there’s been multiple reports that Kobe will be ready to take on the Clippers on Oct. 29, no timetable has been set for his return.

On Wednesday, a report surfaced that Kobe is still unsure if he’ll be ready for the season opener. Obviously, with Kobe’s track record for bouncing back quickly from injuries, many have shrugged this off believing that there’s no way the five-time NBA champion will miss the matchup against Chris Paul and company.

Despite Kobe’s reluctance to let an injury get the best of him, the recovery from surgery to repair his torn Achilles is nothing to be taken lightly. Kobe may very well jeopardize the rest of his playing career in the NBA if he returns too early, and that’s simply not worth the risk.
