Kobe Bryant has probable torn Achilles tendon, MRI Saturday.
It seemed more of when, not if, Kobe Bryant would eventually just break down, as he has carried the Lakers on his back for most of the season. The injury did not look good, and now all the effort Bryant put into trying to secure just the eighth and final seed in the Western Conference will be left in the hands of his teammates as Bryant left the game on crutches. The Lakers are one game ahead of the Utah Jazz with two more regular season games to go. This is reminiscent of the injury Isaiah Thomas suffered at the end of his career.
