Kobe Bryant is getting close -- really close -- to returning. But if you had Friday against the Kings in your comeback pool, bad news.

Via ESPN LA, Kobe said while he isn't playing against the Kings, he isn't ruling out Sunday against the Raptors in Los Angeles. There had been some previous talk that Bryant could be available Friday against Sacramento.

And with the way he's been looking -- dunking left-handed in practice -- it's obvious that Kobe is feeling a lot like his old self. And when Kobe's healthy, you're not going to keep him off the court.
