Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Running 100 Percent On Alter-G Treadmill

The NBA preseason is in full swing for the Los Angeles Lakers with the team already having played three games and showing signs of promise early on. Despite the optimism following the two wins in the first three preseason games, all the attention continues to be directed toward Kobe Bryant’s health and return date.

On Wednesday, Kobe returned to practice after heading to Germany to undergo a knee procedure. Kobe talked about where he’s at physically and the fact he run on his full body weight according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

With less than three weeks until the regular season opener against the Los Angeles Clippers on Oct. 29, Kobe is still trying to get his body right in order to get on the floor for the first game of the season. Although it may be a stretch that Kobe will return for the showdown with the Clippers, it still not beyond the realm of possibility that he’d return in time.

Regardless of the optimism surrounding Kobe’s return, the safe bet would be to anticipate the five-time NBA champion coming back in late November or early December.

    Kobe is really pushing hard to be ready for opening day. I just hope he’s not rushing it. I’ll never question his desire, just pray for good health going forward…

  • Oh Henry!

    If anyone can make it back from this it’s Kobe.

    Kobe: “I need to get my fat ass in shape – 6 mos. of eating whatever the hell I wanted to eat & not running caught up to me a little bit”

    Kobe: “I do a lot of calf raises during the day, just trying to get it as strong as possible and constantly pushing the flexibility of it”

    Kobe says he needs three weeks to get back into shape before playing in a game and wants to see his explosiveness back first –Dave McMenamin

    3 weeks puts Kobe back on the court around the first of November.

      3 weeks to today pusts him on opening night

      • Daryl Peek

        Give or take a day or so. The 30th would be exact, opening night is the 29th.

          true lol

    jogging, running, or sprinting? 3 subjects that people always get confused about. I’d say he’s jogging, that seems more reasonable at this point in time.

    • cj

      hes running at 100% of his wight his own words

      • J24

        @richard / @cj – I’m not saying he didn’t say that, my only argument is that it sounds more like jogging. I mean shouldn’t he start off jogging at 100% of his body weight before he starts running? Gotta crawl b4 you start running. I want to see him succeed, win more championships, and in a Lakers Uniform for a couple more years. I know he has all the doubters and haters out there, but to shut them all up he needs to take his time not rush through it, IMO :/

      Yes, it was runnin..not jogging or sprinting… so let’s just take his word for it… he is running with 100% of his body weight. Sprinting is a different story as it entails explosiveness specially on the first 3-4 steps.

  • Eddie Lazaro

    This is a very good sign, and knowing Kobe the way he is, he will not jeopardize re-injuring that Achilles if he is not ready. He is trying to condition his body where he can start the missing mobility, then a couple of weeks of workout to fine tune himself before getting ready to play. Baby steps, then work on his timing and jump shots.
