Report: Kobe Bryant fully cleared medically


The Lakers expected to Kobe Bryant to be ready for training camp.

They won’t have to wait that long.

Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report:

Bryant has been medically cleared for all basketball activities, according to league sources.

Kobe was initially expected to be out nine months. He beat that by a couple weeks, surely a point of pride.

It’s remarkable Kobe has made it this far, and he deserves credit for his remarkable devotion to training.

But health remains an unavoidable concern for the 37-year-old. Few players who’ve missed so many games at Kobe’s age make it back, let alone successfully.
