Kobe Bryant Discusses Recovery from Achilles Tendon Tear with David Beckham
Kobe Bryant tore his Achilles tendon on April 12 during a game against the Golden State Warriors. It was a blow to the sports world and to Bryant. Bryant has said that he wants to return on the first day of the season, but now has said it may be November or December before he gets back on the court.
This is in line with the usual recovery time for an Achilles tendon rupture and surgery, which is typically about six to nine months.
About two months ago, Bryant had the Achilles surgery to repair the tendon and apparently, he is satisfied with his recovery so far. However, he did consult with David Beckham about his recovery recently. Beckham suffered the same injury in 2010 and was able to recover quickly and apparently has had no issues since then.
Bryant said he is encouraged by Beckham’s recovery and talked to him about the process.
Achilles tendon injuries are common in sports and recovery time varies, but Bryant’s determination will hopefully pull him through this quickly. We wish Bryant the best and hope he heals speedily.
