Lakers star Kobe Bryant sustained a devastating injury during a game against the Golden State Warriors.
Bryant ruptured his left Achilles' tendon while driving to the basket with a little over 3 minutes left in the game. The Lakers may have ended up winning 118-116 over the Golden State Warriors, but Kobe paid a hefty price. According to Lakers trainer Gary Vitti, Kobe will be sidelined for the six to nine months because of his torn Achilles tendon.
The Lakers suffered another heartbreaking disappointment this week as their Golden State Warriors. Kobe had surgery to repair the ruptured tendon, is still expected to be sidelined for the next six to nine months.
Kobe's ruptured tendon is just the latest in a string of injuries plaguing the Lakers this season. There is a little bit of silver lining to this whole debacle; maybe now a few players will actually be able to show off their baller skills.
