EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -- Kobe Bryant has been medically cleared to resume basketball activities.

The Los Angeles Lakers tweeted out the news on Monday, when the team had a day off.

It's another step in Bryant's comeback after he tore his left Achilles tendon seven months ago.

Bryant returned to practice over the weekend, doing some drills with his teammates.

A team spokesman says there's no timetable for Bryant to play in a game.

The Lakers are 5-7.
