Medical doctors have cleared Kobe Bryant to resume basketball activities.
The Los Angeles Lakers relayed the news via Tweeter on Monday, when the Lakers had a day off.
Bryant tore his Achilles tendon right before the 2013 NBA playoffs. The projected timetable for his return was six to nine months. It’s been seven months since he had the ankle surgically repaired.
Bryant practiced over the weekend, where he did completed drills with his teammates, but he was officially cleared Monday.
A team said they are not sure when Bryant would play in a game, according to sources.
The Lakers are having a tough season without the star. Their record is currently 5-7.
