EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) _ Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant underwent shoulder surgery Thursday in New York, and is expected to make a full recovery.
Bryant had an inflamed bursa removed and a frayed labrum trimmed in his right shoulder during the surgery that took under an hour.
He was released from Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in the afternoon. Dr. Louis Bigliani said he expects Bryant to make a complete recovery.
No timetable has been set for Bryant's rehabilitation or return date, but the Lakers expect he'll be ready by the start of training camp in October.
