Lakers' Kobe Bryant rehabilitating from knee surgery

By Mike Bresnahan | latimes.com

Details are unclear, but Bryant is expected to be ready for training camp, where he will join a retooled Lakers roster.

The right knee that bothered Kobe Bryant last season finally went in for some service.

Bryant had arthroscopic surgery last week on the knee, the Lakers announced Friday. The knee bothered Bryant so much in April that he sat out a handful of regular-season games, and it was eventually drained near the end of the Lakers' first-round playoff series against Oklahoma City.

Bryant is rehabilitating the knee and is expected to return in time for training camp, which opens Sept. 25 in El Segundo.
