Kobe Bryant has progressed to running on weight-bearing treadmill


Kobe Bryant continued to push his way back from a torn Achilles tendon, releasing a video of his workout via Instagram on Monday.

The clip shows Bryant running on the Alter-G, the weight-bearing treadmill. While he has been walking on the Alter G for some time during his recovery, Bryant has clearly increased his pace.

The Lakers All-Star guard was injured April 12 in a win over the Golden State Warriors. He had surgery the following day.


While touring China, Bryant said he has “shattered” his recovery timetable, but more recently, Bryant said he’s not sure if he’ll make it back in time for opening night (Oct. 29).

The original timetable for his recovery was six to nine months.

Bryant also tweeted that he won’t forget about what was said and written since his injury.
