Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant sent out a short video clip to his followers on Instagram yesterday in which he can be seen running on an anti-gravity treadmill. While no details were divulged beyond the shot itself, it’s certainly good news as Bryant continues to recovery from his Achilles injury.
You can watch the video at Pro Basketball Talk.
The video was a way for Bryant to tell his fans and the media that he’s on his way back from surgery. As PBT points out, there’s no way of telling what percentage of his body weight Bryant is running at, which would shed more light into where he’s at in the recovery process.
Whatever the case, Bryant running on any treadmill is a good sign considering where he was at the end of last season. It seems like we can expect more of these leaks via the web as he continues through his rehab, as he preceded his Instagram action by bearing his soul on Facebook shortly after sustaining the injury. He’s also a recent addition to Twitter.
