EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - Although Kobe Bryant says he's making steady progress in his recovery from a torn Achilles tendon, the Los Angeles Lakers' guard is still a few weeks away from playing in a game.
Bryant is back with the Lakers after a short trip to Germany to get treatment on his right knee, another trouble area for the 35-year-old guard.
He sat on Los Angeles' bench for an exhibition game Tuesday, and he'll travel with the team to China later this week.
Bryant is running with his full body weight on a special treadmill, and he has done light jogging and calf exercises recently.
He says he'll still need three weeks of conditioning to get into game shape, citing six months of eating ``everything'' while sidelined.
