Kobe Bryant Injury Update

Published on September 17, 2013 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

Before you know it the start of the NBA season will be here, and will Kobe Bryant be playing then? Bryant tore his Achilles on April 12. By all signs Bryant is making a fast recovery but the organization hasn’t named a specific date yet for Bryant’s return. Bryant is expected to miss all of the preseason.

Here is an update on Bryant’s status per John Black Lakers spokesman.

“He’s progressing well and has met all the targets and milestones of his rehab, and we expect him to make a full recovery,” Lakers spokesman John Black told The Times on Monday. “One of the key issues is to make sure he builds up strength and endurance not only in his Achilles but also in his legs, knees, back and core.”

Bryant’s initial timetable called for at least six to nine months of recovery after he was injured April 12 against Golden State. The more optimistic part would put him in play for two Lakers exhibition games in China next month, though Bryant is expected to miss the Lakers’ entire eight-game preseason.

The Lakers first regular season game is October 29th versus the Los Angeles Clippers.
