Kobe Bryant can't fully push off Achilles yet

Kobe Bryant told Lakers.com while the team continues its preseason tour of China that he still is unable to push off his surgically repaired ankle.

The season opener is 11 days from the publication of this post. That doesn't seem like enough time for him to regain push-off enough to practice fully and play, but at this point, it's more of a "He probably won't play but we'll see." Either way, it'll be close.

Meanwhile, at least he's not lamenting the difficulty with it. There's no hesitance, just confidence. Bryant will be back, it's just a matter of when.
