Kobe Bryant suffers ‘probable’ torn Achilles
Despite beating the Golden State Warriors 118-116 at Staples Center, all talk was on star Kobe Bryant and his ‘probable’ Achilles tear. He will undergo an MRI on Saturday to confirm the injury. If the diagnosis is confirmed, Bryant would be out the rest of the season and likely all of next season. Bryant had 34 points before going down with the injury.
