Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant is scheduled to make his season debut on Sunday, when the Lakers host the Toronto Raptors at Staples Center, reported Friday.

Bryant has been out of action since suffering a torn left Achilles tendon nearly eight months ago.

Bryant made the announcement of his scheduled return by linking to a two-minute video on his Facebook page Friday afternoon.

The video begins with the title "Seasons of Legend" and ends with "The Legend Continues ... December 8."

The video shows his No. 24 Lakers jersey being tossed by weather elements. The jersey is then torn down the middle before being repaired by a beam of light.
