Kobe Bryant pleased with latest treatment results

Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant says that he is happy with the results of a procedure undertaken on his knee last week.

Kobe Bryant has said that he is happy with his latest round of treatment.

The Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard travelled to Germany last week for a procedure on his knee.

The 35-year-old told TWCSportsNet.com: "Just making sure I take care of everything. I haven't had this much time off in a very, very long time. So, when I come back, I want to make sure I'm 100%.

"This year, I haven't had a chance to run so I don't know how the knee is gonna hold up, if it's gonna be sore or what. So instead of taking that chance in the middle of the season trying to disappear to Germany then, I figure I do it right now.

"I feel good. Obviously I feel like I'm ahead of schedule. It's about getting that range of motion back where I feel like I can run comfortably and the last stage is really the explosiveness and the muscle endurance and that'll come."

Bryant missed the end of last season after tearing his Achilles.
