News: Bryant (knee) traveled to Germany recently to undergo Orthokine treatment on his right knee, Sporting News reports. Impact: Bryant will undergo a platelet-rich plasma treatment geared toward keeping his surgically repaired knee as spry as possible as the 2014-15 season approaches. It's a treatment he's undergone multiple times in the past since injuries started to become a major issue a few seasons ago. Bryant is also recovering from a tibial fracture but is expected to be ready for the start of the season. It's unclear just how large of a role he'll have right away, with new head coach Byron Scott recently indicating Bryant may be placed on a minutes restriction while he works his way back into game shape.(RotoWire, )

News: Bryant (knee) is entering the 19th season of his NBA career and new coach Byron Scott said that he will have a minutes restriction as he recovers from a fractured tibial plateau, Scott told SCPR.org during a recent interview. Impact: Scott told the public radio station that he doesn't "want to win at the expense of having my one of my guys get hurt. And sometimes, like I said, we're going to sit down, me and my trainer have already sat down, already started talking about the amount of minutes Kobe should probably play, going into this season. And I have to stand fast on that. I have to make sure that when he's up to those minutes, that's it, no matter what the game situation is, as much as I want to win, as much as he wants to win, I'm not going to sacrifice his health to try to win games." Bryant will likely be drafted in the top 50 of most drafts, but his value is highly dependent on how his health holds up after playing just six games in 2013-14.(RotoWire, )
