Bryant underwent successful surgery on April 13, 2013. In the 2013-14 season, the five-time NBA champion missed 19 games before returning against the Toronto Raptors on December 8.

Several months later, Bryant talked about his injury at a Nike summit, mentioning: "When I first did it, right there, I was trying to feel if the tendon is there or if it’s gone. I realized it wasn’t there. I was literally trying to pull the tendon up, so hopefully, I could walk and kind of hobble through the last two and a half minutes and try to play."
