Bryant has said that there's no time table for his return, and that he's ready when he's ready. He's made a remarkably fast recovery from his Achilles tear at the end of last season, but he still can't push all the way through that muscle yet.

While the team was warming up in China, the crowd cheered loudly as the NBA vet ran sprints along the side of the court. 

The Lakers need Bryant back as soon as possible, but he should also wait until he's really healthy because once the season starts, injuries don't get better, they get worse.
