Kobe Bryant won't return against Sacramento Kings

Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant reveals that he will not play against the Sacramento Kings.

Kobe Bryant has revealed that he will not be ready to play against the Sacramento Kings tomorrow.

The shooting guard, who is recovering from an Achilles rupture, has stepped up his participation in practice with the Los Angeles Lakers this week.

The 35-year-old told ESPN: "It feels pretty good. This is the second day now that I've been able to get out there and move around and play and play pretty well, and it felt like I could do anything that I wanted to do out there on the floor, so we progress to [Thursday].

"On to tomorrow. Let's see if I can go three days straight and then have another hard workout on Friday and kind of measure it accordingly.

"It's one thing to be out on the track all day and run. It's another thing to run, jump, change directions, now gather your legs for a shot. You still kind of feel like you get those 'Bambi' legs and that sort of thing. But, the Achilles feels pretty good."

Bryant could return against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.
