Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Starts Shooting In Practice

Kobe Bryant Six games into his return from a torn Achilles tendon injury that kept him sidelined for eight months, Kobe Bryant went down again with a knee injury on the same leg as the torn Achilles.

As a result of the knee injury, Bryant is expected to miss six weeks with a return date of Jan. 28. Fortunately, Bryant was seen at practice on Friday getting shots up via Mike Trudell’s Vine account:

With the Los Angeles Lakers struggling and seemingly headed toward another disappointing end to a season, the Lakers won’t be rushing the perennial All-Star in fear of re-injury.

The Lakers will embark on one of the toughest road trips of the season after two more games at Staples Center. Pau Gasol and company will face off against the Utah Jazz on Friday and Denver Nuggets on Sunday before hitting the road.

The Lakers schedule consists of two games in Texas, one against the Dallas Mavericks and one against Dwight Howard’s Houston Rockets, before returning to Staples as the away team to face the Los Angeles Clippers.

After taking on the Clippers, the Lakers will play the Cleveland Cavaliers at home before playing the next seven games on the road.
