Kobe Bryant’s knee has not been the problem this season. Which is a nice change of pace. Apparently flying all the way to Germany to have an experimental blood treatment done on his knee seems well worth the expense now.
Just don’t ask about the wrist. We’re not talking about the wrist.
Wait… what about trying that exotic version of platelet-rich plasma therapy Kobe had done in Germany on the torn ligaments in his wrist? It worked on his knee, it was good enough for Alex Rodriguez, and all joints are pretty much the same thing, right?
Kobe wants to try it on his wrist, he told Rick Riley of ESPN.
One solution he’s working on is finding somebody to come to L.A. and give him the same Orthokine therapy on his wrist that worked so well on his knee this offseason in Germany.
“I’m looking into that right now,” he says.
Would he have to miss games? It’s Kobe, so probably not.
Sounds painful. But more painful than having an injection before every game? Probably not.
