Kobe Bryant Out Another 2-4 Weeks
The Los Angeles Lakers are 4-16 without Kobe Bryant and they may be without him for an additional 2-4 more weeks. According to Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report, “Bryant’s level of discomfort is such that his visit with Lakers doctor Steve Lombardo on Tuesday evening before the Lakers face the Indiana Pacers will not even include an MRI or any other diagnostic procedure to judge the bone’s healing, according to a team source. Bryant is expected to miss at least two more weeks, perhaps even another month.”
Byrant was originally expected to miss a total of 6 weeks from the time of his injury, however, that would make this Thursday the date for his return. In reality, Kobe Bryant will likely miss a total of 8-10 weeks from the time of his injury, which could mean that misses almost all of February as well.
Father Time is undefeated for a reason and even the great ones such as Kobe Bryant are finally starting to feel the affects of age and injuries. However, what Father Time cannot take away is the will power and drive that Kobe has an unlimited supply of. The only question is how much longer Kobe's body will cooperate with his drive.
