Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Will Not Have Surgery on Injured Wrist

After injuring his wrist in the pre-season against the Los Angeles Clippers, Kobe Bryant has been at the center of speculation as to whether or not he will undergo an experimental operation to repair the wrist much like he did with his knee last summer.

Now, according to Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times, it seems that Bryant will not be having any sort of procedure performed on his wrist. At least not right now.

“Bryant’s wrist issues are apparently here to stay. He will not undergo the same procedure on his wrist that he had on his knee and ankle in Germany last year, for a variety of reasons.”

For most players the injury would require attention and would most likely sideline them for at least a few weeks. But, even in an age where exaggeration controls the world, it’s not a stretch to say that Bryant could be the best player in NBA history playing through injuries.

While it took a few games for Bryant to get used to the injured wrist, since then he has been on an absolute tear. He has helped lead the Lakers to a 3-1 record over the past week, scoring 33.0 points and dishing out 6.3 assists per game in the process. He was awarded the Western Conference Player of the Week for his efforts.
