The Return of the Injured

Cohen’s Analysis: Kobe Bryant is allegedly ahead of schedule from his Achilles injury, Derrick Rose claims he is 100 percent and will be ready for the season opener, Rajon Rondo will likely miss the start of the regular season but should be back by December, Danny Granger claims his knees are improved and Russell Westbrook is keeping his return date a bit of a mystery.

While it is ambiguous what L.A. and Boston’s plans are, Chicago, Indiana and OKC have full intentions of striving for a title this season. Rose, Westbrook and Granger’s contributions, therefore, are significant for their respective clubs.
