Report: Kobe Bryant Medically Cleared to Play

Kobe Bryant Laughs Off His ESPN Rank.

Don’t worry Lakers Fan, Kobe won’t take the year off like D Rose, but it still will take some time before he is back on the court.

It will be sooner than later according to Bleacher Report Kevin Ding courtesy of Word on the Game.

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.

Lakers coaches and basketball operations staff are all content to wait for Bryant to decide in his own mind when he’s ready to resume one of the greatest careers in basketball history after one of the worst injuries that can befall any basketball player.
