According to Jillian Martin and Jason Moon of CNN, Kobe Bryant is expected to miss 6-9 months with his achilles injury that he got last night vs the Golden State Warriors.
The news about Bryant’s injury comes from the Lakers team trainer, Gary Vitti. When asked about how long Kobe is expected to be out, he said he will be ready in 6-9 months. Then the next question came, will Kobe be back next season. Gary simply replied, “That’s the plan.”
It’s safe to say that after all of the hard work the Lakers have done to get this far into the playoff picture, it could possibly come to an end as they lose their main player, Kobe Bryant.
