04:14 PM ET 12.05 | There has been plenty of speculation about when Los Angeles Lakers star guard Kobe Bryant will return to the court from his torn Achilles tendon and Friday was pegged as the potential date for his return. However, Bryant has ruled himself out of Friday's game, but he said that he could be returning on Sunday when the Lakers take on the Toronto Raptors. Los Angeles has been inconsistent on the court without their star guard, so his return will provide an obvious boost to their performance. If Bryant can return to form and play at the level he was at last season before the injury, things could be looking up for the Lakers quickly.

The longer he delays coming back the higher the Lakers' chances to make the playoffs.

There is some truth in what you are saying.

Ironically I have to agree. Team development and chemistry are starting to form with the current roster, but it will be up to Kobe to be patient once he gets back playing with the new players.

Delay coming back, get lucky in the draft. Let Nash retire.
