Kobe Bryant is back in practice with the Los Angeles Lakers and even the five-time NBA champion gets a charge out of getting back to work.

According to the Associated Press, Bryant participated in his second full workout with the Lakers at their training complex on Tuesday. He still isn’t sure when he’ll be back in uniform, but he’s grateful to take the next step in his recovery from a torn Achilles tendon.

Allen will serve his suspension on Wednesday, Nov. 20, when the Grizzlies play the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena.
