LA Lakers 2013-14 Preseason Tracker: Latest News, Tweets, Media from China Trip

The Los Angeles Lakers have quite a slate of action lined up for their preseason. In fact, it should top the Miami Heat's training camp adventures in the Bahamas as the most interesting trip of the pre-regular season action. 

It's all about China, the country that has embraced Kobe Bryant as one of its own over the years. 

After an international flight on Friday, Oct. 11, the Lakers had a full slate of activities lined up. Between then and the second preseason game against the Golden State Warriors, one that will take place on Oct. 18 in Shanghai, the team will visit The Great Wall, the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and so much more that their envy-invoking destination has to offer. 

However, while the trip will be full of exciting sights, sounds and experiences, the focus still has to be on preparing for the 2013-14 season.

And that's why you can keep it tuned here for all the notable tweets, top images and biggest news items coming out of this big adventure.

It doesn't look good for Kobe's ability to suit up during the Lakers season-opener on Oct. 29. 

Something tells me we're about to see an influx of tickets on the market. StubHub and Ebay are about to get busy.

What would the day be without an update on Kobe Bryant's injured Achilles? 

Of course, Kobe's injury isn't the only one affecting the Lakers right now. Jordan Farmar and Wes Johnson are both dealing with maladies of their own.  

Hopefully everyone is healthy by the start of the regular season. It sounds as though these are more precautionary holdouts than anything else.
