Here’s some good news for Lakers fans: Kobe Bryant has taken a big step in his recovery from the right shoulder surgery that ended his 2014-15 season early. He posted a photo Saturday on his Instagram account of himself in the gym and revealed that he’s started shooting again.

With over a month to go before training camp, Bryant being cleared to shoot is a good sign for his health when the season starts. It’s a good bet that this will be his final season, so hopefully he can stay relatively healthy.
