Bryant, who has 15 years on Ware and a hell of a lot more minutes on his frame, still hasn’t touched the court — thought that hasn’t stopped him from collecting a big paycheck. There is still no official return date, and GM Mitch Kupchak says he doesn’t expect Bryant back in the next couple of weeks. But Bryant says he’s completed two of the three weeks of conditioning he needs before setting a date.
All things considered, Bryant’s injury might have been more serious than many realized. Shame on you, Mark Jackson, for thinking he was faking.
