Kobe Bryant Says He Feels Good About His Recovery

Kobe Bryant has returned to the Lakers after traveling to Germany last week for routine medical treatment on his knee.Bryant received a standing ovation as he walked on to the floor in sweats during Tuesday night’s Los Angeles Lakers preseason game against the Denver Nuggets. The all-star, who is also recovering from a torn Achilles tendon he suffered last NBA season, spoke about the progress of his injuries in a television interview.“It’s going well,” Bryant said. “I feel good. Obviously, I feel like I’m ahead of schedule. It’s about trying to get that range of motion back where I feel like I can run comfortably. The last stage is really the explosiveness and the muscle endurance, and that will come.”There is no firm return date for Bryant’s return, but he has been making light jogging runs and set shooting in the Laker’s training camp practice.“Just keep grinding. Keep working hard and getting better,” Bryant said. “I gotta get in shape, too. I’ve been sitting on my butt now for a while. I gotta get up and get moving.” read more
