Report: Lakers to Rule Out Kobe For The Rest of the Year


Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report is reporting what Lakers fans have wanted all season.

Kobe Bryant will officially miss the remainder of the season.

The Los Angeles Lakers are expected to declare Bryant out for the rest of the 2013-14 Lakers season later this week, according to team sources. Bryant is not accompanying the team on its trip to Oklahoma City and San Antonio, staying back to be reexamined by team doctor Steve Lombardo. And considering where Bryant’s level of discomfort remains with the fractured lateral tibial plateau in his left knee, barring an unforeseen change, the team will finalize the decision that Bryant will not play again this season.

Expect Kobe to get better and fuel himself with thoughts of all the jokes and 40 point blowouts.
