EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - Kobe Bryant has participated in another full practice with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Bryant still isn't sure when he'll be back in uniform, but his second workout with his teammates Tuesday left him optimistic about his return.
The fourth-leading scorer in NBA history hasn't played since tearing his Achilles tendon in a game against Golden State in April. He did several weeks of conditioning work before returning to practice last Saturday for a brief workout.
He did drills and 5-on-5 play with the Lakers on Tuesday. He says he's ''pleasantly surprised'' by how good he felt afterward.
Bryant says he could adjust his game and contribute something to the Lakers right now, but he wants to make sure he's ready to play for the long haul when he returns.
