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.

For Lakers fans, this news couldn’t have come at a worse time. The team is currently on a five-game losing streak, and have have won only three of their last 20.

All Kobe wants to do is be out there helping his fellow teammates, and this lengthy recovery process has taken its toll on him according to Melissa Rohlin of the Los Angeles Times:

What Kobe has opted to do instead is remain positive, and try to find some silver-lining in spite of his unfortunate situation:

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.
