" Shaquille O'Neal chimed in to say he sees Bryant trying to be ready for the season opener .  Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak admitted, " Kobe is a big question mark .

The Lakers host the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night with hopes of getting their first win of the season after an 0-3 start. The Pistons are also winless (0-2) but catch the Lakers without Steve Nash, who will be out at least a week with a non-displaced leg fracture. Detroit might struggle to make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference this season but they do have a talented roster with such players as Brandon Knight, Greg Monroe and Rodney Stuckey. The way the Lakers have played since the start of the preseason, they're vulnerable.
