The Lakers finished off a busy week which featured a four game road trip. The purple and gold went 2-2 on their four game road trip, and finished off the week with a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves at home. The week was also not kind for Laker fans as the team learned Kobe Bryant is expected to miss six weeks with a fractured left tibia in his knee. Bryant’s loss is devastating as the team is already dealing with injuries to Steve Nash, Jordan Farmar, and Steve Blake. The Lakers will play four games in the next six days as the Holiday’s approach. The team will head out onto the road to play the Warriors and Suns in their next two. The Lakers will also continue their tradition of playing on Christmas day when they host the defending champion Miami Heat on Wednesday afternoon. Before the Lakers start their busy week of basketball, take a look at this weeks edition of the Lakers Nation photos of the week.
