As the graphic above points out, Bryant has missed 112 games due to injury during the course of his 18-year career. That’s the equivalent to about a season and a half worth of games, but Bryant has made up these missed games in the playoffs. The five-time champion is second in all-time playoff minutes to only the great Kareem Abdul Jabbar.

Kobe’s recent Achilles and knee fracture are the only injuries that have kept him out action for an extended amount of time. Bryant is extremely competitive and is known to fight through injuries in order to help his team win.

However, Bryant will continue to keep himself in top shape and prepare for the 2014-15 season. With the window closing on Bryant’s opportunity to get his much coveted sixth ring, Kobe knows he must stay healthy to help the Lakers compete for a title.

    Lets not forget the back spasms that forced him to sit out a few games during the 2009-2010 championship season. Although he didn’t completely heal from them he came back anyway and adjusted his game. I dont know how the hell he managed to do that because spasms are no joke, I have had them before and I could barely walk or sit down without the feeling of excruciating pain
