EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - Kobe Bryant has returned to practice with the Los Angeles Lakers for the first time since he tore his Achilles' tendon seven months ago.
Bryant rejoined practice Saturday with the Lakers.
The fourth-leading scorer in NBA history hadn't worked out with his teammates since getting hurt in April during a game against Golden State. He has been running on a treadmill for several weeks, but had done few basketball workouts.
Bryant has given no timetable for his return to the court, but had previously said he'll need significant practice time before getting into game shape.
Los Angeles also is without guard Steve Nash, who has nerve root irritation.
The Lakers held a short practice after Friday's home loss to Memphis. Los Angeles hosts Detroit on Sunday night.
