This past week, Kobe Bryant sat down with Kustoo.com to discuss his latest release of his new kicks. During the interview, Bryant updated everyone on the progress he’s made on his left knee injury.
“It’s progressing slowly. It really tests my patience,” said Bryant. “There’s only so much you can do, so I find myself relegated to riding the bike.”
Bryant has only played in six games this season due to his recovery from his Achilles’ tear last April and then after injuring his lateral tibial plateau on Dec. 17 against the Memphis Grizzlies.
“After the first few weeks [riding the bike], it’s cool — you’re getting a good workout,” said Bryant. “Then third, fourth — I need to do something else. I want to play. I want to run. I want to do something different, but you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do.”
At this point it is unclear whether Bryant will even return this season as the Lakers currently sit at the bottom of the Western Conference standings.
