Brand, who tore his left Achilles' tendon last summer, was re-examined Thursday by Dr. Craig Morgan at Christiana Care's Wilmington Hospital in Wilmington, Del., and cleared to begin extensive running and jumping exercises on the court
The next step in the 28-year-old forward's rehabilitation process will lead to his returning to team drills and eventual return to full practice.
Brand was scheduled to be examined by team physician Dr. Tony Daly upon his return to Los Angeles.
Brand, who averaged 20.5 points and 9.3 rebounds last season, was injured Aug. 3 during his daily workout in nearby El Segundo, and Morgan performed surgery four days later.
