From the minute Kobe Bryant tore his Achilles tendon in mid-April, the details of his recovery have been deemed newsworthy, from the course of his rehabilitation to his adjusted plans for the future.

    How’s your progress coming along, I’ve got the exact same injury on March 19 and I’m almost at a point where I can run without a limp. Hopefully we’ll see you on the court by Xmas, I know my rehabbing is not as intensive as yours but I will be back also.
