LOS ANGELES, CA –

And the angels sang, the people rejoiced and cried, and mama cooked a breakfast with no hog.

Kobe Bryant has been medically cleared to fully return to the team. He can resume all basketballactivities and doesn’t have any restrictions moving forward with the rehab process from his injury.

From Lakers.com:

The Lakers got some good news over the weekend: Kobe Bryant has been fully medically cleared to resume all basketball activities.

As reported by Bleacher Report’s Kevin Ding, Bryant has no restrictions on his continued progress in his rehabilitation from the torn left Achilles tendon suffered seven months ago.

Bryant made his much-anticipated return to practice on Saturday, where he went through 5-on-0 drills and did some half court drills with his teammates.

“He looked real good,” said Jordan Hill of Bryant at practice after his own career-high game against Detroit. “He was going real hard. I thought he wasn’t going to be able to go that hard but he was really pushing it. And, I know he’s not ready yet but he’s coming along and he should be ready pretty soon.”

Medically cleared is one thing, ready to play in a game is another. Let’s keep our fingers crossed Laker fans. Maybe we can get him back on Christmas Day.
