Kobe Bryant injury news is really bad news for the LA Lakers. This latest Kobe Bryant injury update reveals that the Lakers star has a fracture of the lateral tibial plateau. A report from ESPN late Thursday (Dec. 19) states that he is going to miss at least six weeks with this latest problem.

This appears to have taken place during a win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night (Dec. 17). He went through an MRI on Thursday that revealed just how bad the problem has become in that left knee. It's just more bad news for a team that has struggled quite a bit this year and it will create a situation where even more NBA analysts start talking about his age catching up to him.

Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni spoke about it at practice on Thursday. He stated, "That's too bad. You hate it for Kobe. He worked so hard to get back. But he'll be back. He'll be back in six weeks, and we'll deal with it and weather the storm until he gets back."

Fantasy basketball owners don't want to hear about another Kobe Bryant injury, especially after he just got back on the court. Now he likely won't play in another game until February, potentially leaving the Lakers really short-handed until that point. Currently the team is 12-13 and has moved up to 11th place in the Western Conference.
