VIDEO: Kobe Bryant dunks at practice, Friday return still possible

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

Kobe Bryant continues his progress in practice towards a Friday return, including this breakaway dunk Tuesday.

Lakers' comments to media in practice were that Kobe looked "really good." The question will be whether he's in a good enough recovery position on Thursday to make his season debut Friday.

It's just a dunk in practice, and he didn't get up high or anything, but he did swoop in and scoop up that loose ball with Mamba-like intensity. The question of his return Friday is still very much in doubt but there's also no question he's close. By all indications, barring a setback, Kobe Bryant will be back on the court for the Lakers within the next two weeks.
