Kevin Ding's post on LA Lakers | Latest updates on Sulia
Kobe in China on Achilles: "It was pretty innovative, the procedure that we did, in terms of how we attached ...
the tendon and where it was torn. There are really complicated procedures that they normally do when taking tendons from the big toe and I don't want to bore you guys with nasty stuff. But we really simplified the procedure and kind of took a risk with it -- a calculated risk -- and it has been very successful for us."
I've said I think Kobe will play opening night on Oct. 29 vs. the Clippers, and he said about "the normal timetable for recovering for an Achilles, we've shattered that." He said he's lifting weights already, and "we don't know what that timetable's going to be."
