He apparently was hurt again Tuesday night in Memphis while playing his fourth game in five nights. After playing six games in 10 days, the fourth-leading scorer in NBA history is out again until February or longer and the Lakers' already miserable run of injuries got even uglier.
"You hate it for Kobe," Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni told reporters after practice Thursday. "He's worked so hard to get back, but he'll be back. He'll be back in six weeks. We've just got to weather the storm until he gets back."
The Lakers also anv nounced Steve Nash will be out for at least four more weeks with nerve root irritation, leaving injury-riddled Los Angeles without its top three point guards and Bryant who filled in at the point in recent games for at least another week.
On Thursday afternoon, a tweet was posted on Bryant's official Twitter account that consisted solely ,of the hashtag: BrokenNotBeaten.
"I think he'll be back in six weeks, and he'll be hunting for some bear," D'Antoni said.
The rest of the Lakers found out about Bryant's injury after practice for Friday's home game against Minnesota. The remnants of the Lakers, who have lost four of six since Bryant's return, also will host Miami on Christmas Day.
"It's hard to get this type of news, especially when we've got already so many injuries, when we've been through so many injuries the year before," Pau Gasol said. "It just' keeps piling up. It's not the best thing for us, for sure, but we've just got to continue to go forward. We understand it can happen."
D'Antoni immediately faced questions about whether the Lakers allowed, Bryant to return 9
