Report: Kobe Bryant Fully Cleared To Play Basketball

Kobe Bryant has been fully cleared to return from his Achilles tendon tear in April, Bryant is ready to resume his legendary career and is expected to return in the first week of December. This is great news, we wrote a must read article about how Kobe Bryant would return with a vengeance! We can not wait to see him back.

Via Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report: 

Bryant has full medical clearance, I was told Sunday by someone in a position to have such knowledge—meaning he can do anything and everything without restriction as the recovery from his ruptured left Achilles tendon nears its conclusion.

Even with full clearance, though, Bryant is not expected to jump right back into game action Friday night against Golden State or even the next week of Thanksgiving. Bryant wants to test his ankle joint and see how it responds, which he will get to on an initial basis with full-scale team practices set for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

The Dec. 6 game in Sacramento at one of Bryant’s favorite venues might serve as a logical date because the Lakers have no games scheduled Dec. 2-5, meaning Bryant could gain clarity in his mind during practices that week that his left ankle is completely ready and the right knee he treated in Germany last month is also primed.
