After going down with a knee injury in December, Kobe Bryant was diagnosed with a fractured knee and was set to miss six weeks as a result. Unfortunately, Bryant will miss more than six weeks with his timetable for return currently up in the air according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters via Twitter on Jan. 20:

Kobe says his timetable is "up in the air" right now.

Initially, Bryant was supposed to have his fractured knee re-evaluated on Jan. 27 in preparation for a potential return against the Indiana Pacers on Jan. 28. Unfortunately, that will no happen with Bryant set to be re-evaluated in February.

Along with Bryant stuck on the bench with the knee injury, the Lakers also have Jordan Farmar, Xavier Henry, Steve Blake and Steve Nash dealing with injuries of their own. Not one of these players have a timetable for a return with Henry likely to the be the first to return to the floor for the Lakers.

Although the Lakers are currently without Bryant, the team may be starting to turn things around with two consecutive wins over the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors. The team will hope to keep it going against the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.
