Kobe Bryant: 'No timetable in place for return'

Kobe Bryant refuses to set a date for his return to action for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Kobe Bryant has claimed that no date has been set for his return to action from an Achilles injury.

The 35-year-old underwent surgery on the tendon in April and has recently been able to begin running again, but has refused to predict a date for his Los Angeles Lakers comeback.

"I don't think we really have a particular timetable as far as where I should be right now, but I'm feeling good," Bryant told reporters.

"Everybody was really concerned about this injury, and so was I, but the procedure and the therapy right afterwards and things like that really got me ahead of the curve. So it feels like the hard part's over."

The Lakers begin their season against the Los Angeles Clippers on October 29.
