Reader Comment of the Day:"We have gone through 3 years of rehab and injury timetables with AB that have never been on schedule, so I ask this.... 1. What workout, strength and cardio activities has he been doing? 2. Is he using the Alter G or running on his own? Lakers are saying they are "hopeful" he will be ready at start of regular season. He's got a month to be "game" ready. So, by mid-October, if he's not cleared for "basketball activities or contact", IMO, he is recovering slowly again and can't possibly be ready for opening night. I will be respectful as I don't want to start another blog rumble but that's a bummer. I will just hope for the best which is to be out there for the opening tip on 10/26." -- PsychedLakerGirl
