Bryant 'better than he's looked so far,' Jackson says

Kobe Bryant's right knee is improving incrementally, and Tuesday was his best day so far this season, Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said.

Bryant joined the Lakers in the middle of their practice after undergoing his own off-court training Tuesday.

"I think he looked OK, actually," Jackson said. "He had a full workout, a shooting workout and a weight workout this morning before he stepped out in practice. I thought he looked better than he's looked so far."

Bryant will play two eight-minute segments in the Lakers' exhibition game Wednesday against the Sacramento Kings, Jackson said.

In two exhibition games, Bryant has made only two of 19 shots. He had knee surgery in July.
