Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant has traveled to Germany to undergo a treatment on his bothersome right knee, the Los Angeles Times reported on Thursday.

Bryant, who is still recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon in his left foot, has been participating in some light training drills but has not been cleared for full practice with his teammates.

The 35-year-old, who had surgery on the Achilles in April, hopes to be ready for the start of the Lakers’ season on Oct. 29.

Multiple reports have stated that 35-year-old Bryant is on his way to Germany to receive platelet-rich plasma therapy on his right knee.

The 15-time All-Star had the treatment performed on the same knee prior to the 2011-12 season.
