Kobe Bryant returns to Germany in order to undergo another Orthokine transfer to help treat his long-term knee condition, according to a report in the press.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant has returned to Germany to undergo more progressive treatment on his degenerative knee condition, according to a report in the press.

ProBasketballTalk suggests that Bryant has gone back to visit the doctor who performs an annual Orthokine switch to transfer platelet-rich plasma into the area around his right knee, which has been damaged over years spent on the court.

The process sees blood taken the from the player's arm placed into his right knee to ensure that healing platelets reach the region, in order to replace and rebuild degrading tissue.

Bryant has to travel to Germany for the procedure to be undertaken as the process is yet to be fully approved by the FDA in the US.
