Kobe Bryant continues his rehabilitation from an Achilles injury sustained last season, but the LA Lakers superstar has also been receiving some specialist treatment to his knee in Germany.

Bryant has been out of action since April after rupturing his Achilles tendon against Golden State, and the NBA legend is set to miss all of the Lakers' pre-season action as he tries to regain fitness.

The 35-year-old is working hard to build his ankle up to full-strength once again but, given his advanced years, Bryant's knees have also been in need of a bit of attention too.

Bryant posted a picture on Instagram on Tuesday of him receiving Orthokine treatment in Germany, with the procedure involving the withdrawal and re-injection of blood, once it has been mixed with other substances.

It is still unclear when the five-time NBA champion will return for the Lakers, and his long-term future with the franchise remains in some doubt with Bryant potentially able to become a free agent at the end of the season.
