With Kobe going down with a season-ending injury for the second straight year, many have questioned how much the five-time NBA champion might have left in the tank. Even though Kobe believes he’s still an elite player in the NBA, it remains to be seen if that will be the case once he returns next season.

Following a return from a short vacation in France, Kobe got back to work immediately with an intense six-month training program in April in order to get his body back to form.

According to Sam Amick of USA Today, trainer Tim Grover says Kobe’s recovery is going very well:

Kobe will turn 36 in August and will be entering potentially the last two years of his NBA career after a signing a two-year, $48.5 million contract extension with the Lakers back in November of 2013.

With all the uncertainty surrounding the immediate future of the Lakers franchise, there’s no telling who will be playing alongside Kobe next season or even for the rest of his career.

The Lakers brass will attempt to rebuild around an aging Kobe this summer and the next, but there’s no guarantee the team will be able to make the right moves with limited options. The team will have considerable cap space at their disposal, but few trade assets to upgrade the squad immediately with a proven star.
