#24 Kobe Bryant
Aug 23: Bryant (shoulder) posted on social media that he was shooting for the first time since undergoing shoulder surgery to repair a torn right rotator cuff in January. Clearing this hurdle in the recovery process bodes well for his readiness heading into training camp. He's projected as the team's starting small forward, and the lack of depth at that position may force him to play an abundance of minutes which could lead to another season-ending injury.
