Kobe three months ahead of rehab schedule, fellow player reports

USA TODAY Sports

Kobe Bryant's rehabilitation process is three months ahead of schedule.

Kobe Bryant has told Chris Douglas-Roberts he is three months ahead of schedule after tearing his Achilles in April. Douglas-Roberts is playing for the Los Angeles Lakers' summer league squad and spoke with media after the team's victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday.

"He told me he's three months ahead of schedule, which is very Kobe-like," Douglas-Roberts said regarding his recent conversation with Bryant.

Bryant is expected to begin running in about three weeks. Bryant has hinted that he is ahead of schedule, but a specific number had not been placed on how far ahead he is previously.

He immediately underwent surgery after confirming the Achilles had completely torn on April 12. Bryant has since stated he expects to play at a "high level" for at least three more years.

The Lakers have added a handful of perimeter players in the meantime by signing Nick Young and Wesley Johnson while also picking up Jodie Meeks' team option.
