Kobe Bryant has been out since December 17 after suffering a fracture in his left leg. Initially, the timetable for recovery was scheduled at four to six weeks, but after being re-examined, it was announced by Lakers reporter Mike Trudell that the 18-year veteran would be out at least three more weeks.

It is expected that Kobe will continue to work as hard as he can to get fully healthy. He’s made it known that he plans to play again this season, so it will be interesting to see what the Lakers’ medical staff suggests after this three-week period.
