Maxwell Ogden@MaxwellOgdenCorrespondent IIIOctober 3, 2013

No storyline has garnered as much attention during the 2013 NBA offseason as the recovery process of injured Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant. Bryant has spent months rehabilitating a torn Achilles tendon that forced him to miss the playoffs.

According to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily NewsBryant has now left the United States for an undisclosed medical procedure that is unrelated to his Achilles tear.

The Lakers organization wouldn't reveal which country Bryant has gone to and decided not to inform the media of what exactly Kobe is dealing with.

However, Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski provides details on the procedure:

Kobe Bryant is traveling to Germany to have another round of platelet-rich plasma therapy on his right knee, league sources tell Y! Sports.
