Just seven months after injuring his Achilles tendon, Kobe Bryant was cleared to resume basketball activities on Monday. He was already practicing on his own, but doctors have now given the “Return of the Mamba” their blessing.
The Lakers wasted no time in showing fans that Bryant was at practice. They posted a video of Bryant shooting from the top of the key in slo-mo to the team’s Instagram account on Tuesday.
It is in slo-mo, right?
The Lakers next game is Friday when they host Golden State at the Staples Center (10:30 p.m. ET). If Kobe’s not back for the Christmas Day game against the Heat in L.A., we’ll be shocked.
