EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — The Lakers expect to have Kobe Bryant back in their lineup when they face the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

The team posted a dramatic video on its Facebook page Friday indicating Bryant will be back Dec. 8.

Los Angeles signed the fourth-leading scoring in NBA history to a two-year contract extension last week. Bryant’s new deal is reportedly worth $48.5 million and takes him into his 20th season with the Lakers.
