Per the Lakers, Bryant received left the United States to undergo an undisclosed medical procedure, unrelated to his surgically repaired left Achilles.
Via the L.A. Daily News, the Lakers wouldn't disclose where Bryant went or what the procedure was, but said he'd return early next week.
However, per Yahoo Sports, Kobe is headed to Germany for platelet-rich plasma therapy on his knees. The treatment has become a pretty routine thing for Bryant the past few years.
