VIDEO: Breanna Stewart Posts Awesome Workout Video After Achilles Injury and Gets Shoutout From Kobe

Breanna Stewart is currently on the mend from one of the worst injuries any athlete can face: a torn Achilles. Well, she seems motivated as anyone in her road to recovery, posting a video on social media of her working out just 20 weeks after the injury.

Stewart suffered the gruesome injury just a few months ago, and while she won't take part in the 2019 WNBA season, she should be good to go for the 2020 campaign.

Well, someone who has gone through the similar struggles of recovering from a ruptured Achilles showed her some love on Twitter after watching her workout video.

An incredibly fired up Kobe Bryant gave the WNBA superstar a shoutout and a few words of encouragement in a comment on the video.

Who better to help motivate an athlete recovering from an Achilles injury than the Mamba himself? Not only has he shared the same injury experience, but Kobe also has unparalleled work ethic, and perhaps knowing that the former Laker is keeping tabs on her progress will inspire Stewart to train even harder.
