Kobe: Hard Part’s Over, Now ‘Feeling Good’
“I don’t think we really have a particular timetable as far as where I should be right now, but I’m feeling good,” (Kobe) Bryant said.
The team’s original timeline for the recovery of Bryant, who had surgery to repair the Achilles in April, was six to nine months.
“Everybody was really concerned about this injury, and so was I, but the procedure and the therapy right afterwards and things like that really got me ahead of the curve,” Bryant said. “So, it feels like the hard part’s over.”
