Kobe Bryant Injury Update: Bryant ruled out for at least another three weeks

The injury problems continue to get worse and worse for the Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe Bryant had his injured left knee looked at on Tues. Jan. 28 and it was determined that he'd be out at least another three weeks before getting the knee examined once again according to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com:

Kobe Bryant will miss at least 3 more weeks before being evaluated once again. He still has pain and swelling in his left knee.

Even though Bryant will miss the next three weeks before being re-evaluated, it'd be safe to assume that he won't be back on the court for another month or potentially longer.

With that being said, the Lakers will be without their superstar a little while longer and will need players like Nick Young to help shoulder the load in the meantime. Young played well while Bryant has been injured this season leading the Lakers in scoring with 16.9 points per game.

Despite Young's impressive play and legitimate shot at winning the Sixth Man of the Year award, the Lakers have really struggled with the majority of their backcourt players injured. Along with Bryant, the Lakers are without Xavier Henry, Jordan Farmar, Steve Blake and Steve Nash.

Fortunately, the Lakers may get Nash back in the lineup as early as Jan. 4 against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Nash has played in the same number of games as Bryant this season being on the floor with his team only six times thus far.
