Kobe Bryant injury: Lakers star has probable torn Achilles

USA TODAY Sports

The Lakers received yet another bit of bad news after Friday's game. Kobe Bryant may be sidelined for the foreseeable future.

With 2:57 left in Friday night's game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors, Kobe Bryant limped off the floor with a left leg injury.

The superstar was not moving well as he left the court and did not return to play. Following the Lakers win, Ken Berger of CBS relayed the following news, which could potentially be disastrous for the Lakers as they cling to their No. 8 seeding in the Western Conference:

Bryant has been dinged-up throughout the season and has played through injury numerous times throughout his career, but a torn Achilles would be something not even the future Hall of Famer would be able to play through. A bleak postseason outlook may have gotten even bleaker in a hurry.
