Kuzma isn't ready to say his legs and conditioning are all the way back just yet.

"I'll let you know tomorrow night. I'll let you know," he said. "I know that from a conditioning standpoint, I wasn't necessarily tired. But it's still a thing, you know, jumping up and getting the right arc and whatnot. So, you know, it's coming. I think that fourth quarter was encouraging for myself."

Bradley optimistic

Coach Frank Vogel told the media that he was questionable for Friday night's game against the Miami Heat at Staples Center, but Avery Bradley sees it "more on the positive side" of being able to play.

Bradley missed Tuesday night's game against the Bulls because of a bruised right lower leg after being inadvertently kicked by San Antonio's Dejounte Murray on Sunday night.

That led Vogel to say after Bradley participated in the non-contract portion of practice Thursday that his 6-2 guard was questionable.

"It's probably a little more on the positive side," Bradley said. "But as of right now, I'm just gonna come in tomorrow, see how I feel in the morning and then hopefully I'm feeling well enough to play ... . It is improving. As of right now, I'm planning on playing tomorrow, but we'll see how I feel tomorrow."



Vogel said Rajon Rondo, who has been sidelined by a calf injury, participated in the non-contact portion of practice Thursday, but that his guard was doubtful for the game against the Heat Friday night.
