Lakers Injury News: Kobe Bryant Out At Least Three More Weeks



Superstar Kobe Bryant has been out of the lineup for the Los Angeles Lakers since Dec. 17 after the five-time NBA champion went down with a knee fracture in his left leg.

Although it seemed as thought Bryant might be back against the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday, the perennial All-Star was re-examined and said to be out at least another two weeks but possibly out as much as another month.

On Tuesday night, another update was given on Bryant’s status according to Mike Trudell of

With the Lakers dealing with multiple injuries to players in the backcourt, the storied franchise had to go to the D-League to find players to shoulder the load. Kendall Marshall has done a great job filling the void at the point guard position while Manny Harris continues to improve with every passing game.

Although Bryant will be out at least three more weeks, not much will change for this team outside of the fact that Steve Nash, Jordan Farmar and Xavier Henry might return before him.

    this is truly depressing!!!

    No rush. 1st or 2nd wk of March IMO, which gives him over a month of playtime time and the entire off season to return to full health and NBA conditioning. Things wouldn’t have changed either way with regards to turning things around but lottery here we come. #rollwithitforthisseasononly

    Don’t know why people are grieving about this. Don’t get me wrong, it sucks that Kobe is out for longer and that his knee hasn’t healed properly but the guy is 35 years old with 17+ season in NBA it shouldn’t come to a surprise that its taking longer to heal.

    + Its not like Lakers are a playoff contender team that need Kobe…we are 6th from the bottom, Kobe take your time heal up and come back strong!

    This sucks, but it is benefiting him. He gets more rest and don’t have to rush back to try to save a lost season. He can get some playing time towards the end of the season to get a feel for the game, and he have the off season to get fully healthy. I would rather him miss as much time possible than to come back too fast and re-injure himself.
