Kobe Bryant Has a Probable Torn Achilles

by April 13, 2013

The Los Angeles Lakers pulled off a miracle 118-116 win against the Golden State Warriors (who had led for much of the game), keeping their Playoff hopes alive. Unfortunately, even if the Lakers reach the postseason, they may have to go on without Kobe Bryant. The team announced that the 17-year veteran suffered a “probable” torn left achilles late in the fourth quarter — an MRI will confirm his fate on Saturday: “Lakers PR team saying Kobe Bryant suffered a probable torn Achilles in tonight’s game. He’ll have a MRI tomorrow to confirm.”
