Kobe Bryant undergoes knee procedure

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — A published report says Kobe Bryant has undergone a procedure in Germany to try to strengthen his arthritic right knee.

Citing four unidentified sources familiar with the situation, The Los Angeles Times on Friday reported that the Lakers superstar had a procedure about a month ago that is a derivation of platelet-rich plasma therapy. PRP procedures are less invasive than many surgeries involving the knee.

Bryant, who turns 33 next month, has been bothered in recent seasons by an arthritic joint in his right knee. He has undergone three other knee procedures since 2003, including surgery last July to remove unspecified loose bodies.
