Kobe suffers 'probable' Achilles tendon tear

Kobe Bryant set for MRI

LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant suffered what the team called a probable torn Achilles tendon during Friday night's 118-116 win over the Golden State Warriors.

He will undergo an MRI on Saturday morning to confirm the injury, according to the Lakers.

Bryant checked out of Friday night's game against the Warriors with 3:06 remaining in the fourth quarter.

He had 34 points on 9-for-21 shooting before leaving, playing every minute of the game up to that point.

If it is a tear, he could be out next season also.

This is one of those times when I'm torn. Hate to see anyone injured, but then again, as I've watched Spurs and other team stars go down time after time and I've always wondered why doesn't Kobe or LeBron ever seem to get injured?

And now that Kobe is injured of course it comes at a time when the lakers weren't a real threat this year anyway and there's even a freaking silver lining for the lakers. If he's out for next season, they can actually use the amnesty clause on him and save about 80 million bucks and use that to rebuild and then he can come back next season and have a retirement tour.

Would be good move for him. Pop would keep his minutes down, and Pop is probably the only coach other than Jackson he truly respects. He would never have to be disappointed in his power forward, like he is with Gasol. If he wanted a sixth ring and maybe 7th, what better place to get it. But not going to happen, he's owed 30 million next year.

I've been telling my lakers friend that I can see Kobe leaving and playing n for the spurs and winning with Timmy haha. If they amnesty him, to save $80M its a possibility he stays classy and go to a veteran team with our superior coaching in all facets (health preservation, time management, etc). I doubt it happens but he damn sure wouldn't join the heat or thunder

Yikes, that's awful. I've always had enormous respect for Kobe's work ethic and competitiveness. This is devastating.

This is why you shouldn't overplay older players. They can get hurt too easily.

Popovich knows this but apparently D'antoni hasn't figured it out.

That means he is probably going to aim to comeback around the allstar brake. The Lakers ate gonna be around or just above .500 and the story repeats.

I was saddened yesterday to see one of my favorite players out for the playoffs and possibly the end of his career. Good luck SJAX!

Why do the Lakers have the Pounding the Rock quote up in their locker room? Isn't that Pop/SA's thing? I noticed in the interview Kobe did after the game.

Man that sucks for Kobe and Lakers too.

As much as i HATE and despise so much the Freaking Lakers. I would never wish such an injury on any player in the NBA. But it is what it is.

God sends a message to them by taking Kobe. Enough is enough. Magic Johnson saying the FTL will beat the Spurs if they meet first round... Geez people....

Lakers will suck forever! That is for sure!

Kobe would exit at the right time without getting humiliated in the PO.

I can see Le Lakers Amnesty his Arse next year and Kobe looks to sign anywhere to piss them off........Sometimes one Man's Garbage is another Man's Treasure!!!!

The Good Lord makes things happen for a reason!!!!!!
