After aggravating a shoulder injury earlier this week, an MRI revealed that Kobe Bryant suffered a torn rotator cuff. With the Los Angeles Lakers expecting him to miss the rest of the season, both parties are still evaluating their options and a decision could be made as early as Monday.
On Saturday, Kobe was at Hollywood Sports Paintball & Airsoft Park with UFC’s Anderson Silva and his sons via Silva’s Instagram account:
In addition to being at the paintball park, Kobe also tweeted out an exclusive video of him getting a diagnosis for his shoulder. While it was a short clip, it provided fans an inside look of his reaction when the doctor confirmed the torn rotator cuff.
After a strong start to the 2014-15 NBA season, the minutes played and high usage rate ultimately took a toll on the 36-year-old. As a result, Kobe has become more of a facilitator while head coach Byron Scott has limited him to 32 minutes per game while sitting him out when necessary.
