Kobe's Surgery More Serious Than Thought

Kobe's Surgery More Serious Than Thought

Postby Lakers Dynasty 2000 on Tue Jul 08, 2003 11:49 pm

According to Tim Brown of the LA times, "Bryant's recovery from knee surgery is expected to take about three months, according to his surgeons, which almost certainly will prevent him from playing in the Olympic qualifying tournament. Drs. Richard Hawkins and Dick Steadman told the team Tuesday that during Bryant's knee surgery, they removed scar tissue from behind his patella tendon and smoothed a rough area behind his kneecap. Also, they removed what they termed "a loose body."

According to reports, it was July 1, the day after he arrived at the hotel, and the day after the alleged assault.
