While he is not playing Friday night, Kobe Bryant feels “close” to a return, agreeing that he is gauging his health with a “game to game” mentality.

Kobe sat down with ESPN’s Dave McMenamin Wednesday and discussed his recovery, the “glitches” in ESPN’s player ranking system, and the process of self-discovery that he had following his Achilles injury.

Kobe talking to the media about a return being very close is a good sign. With the Lakers standing at 9-9, they’ve certainly hung tough without Kobe. Once he returns, Laker Nation will have a chance to see this team’s real capabilities.
