Kobe Bryant Out Six Weeks With Knee Injury

 

Sad news coming out of LA, the Lakers have announced that Kobe Bryant is expected to miss six weeks after suffering a fractured lateral tibial plateau in his left knee. This hurts, Bryant played just six games since working so hard to return from his torn left Achilles tendon, and he was just starting to get it going these past few games. This is a huge blow for the Lakers and any Kobe Bryant fan.

Could this be the beginning of the end? Will the 35 year old Bryant ever be able to bounce back?

Report via Sports Illustrated: 

The Lakers announced Thursday that Kobe Bryant will be out for six weeks after suffering a fractured lateral tibial plateau in his left knee. If Bryant misses exactly six weeks, he will be sidelined for L.A.’s next 21 games with an expected return date in the last week of January.

Bryant, 35, has appeared in only six games this season after rehabilitating from a torn left Achilles tendon that ended his 2012-13 season in mid-April. He made his season debut on Dec. 8 against the Raptors, just 11 days ago.

“You hate it for Kobe,” Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said. “He’s worked so hard to get back.”
