Kobe Day-to-Day with Torn Wrist Ligament
The Los Angeles Lakers announced on Wednesday that star guard Kobe Bryant has been diagnosed with a torn lunotriquetral ligament in his right wrist.
Officially his status is listed as day-to-day.
Bryant injured his wrist in a fall on Monday in a preseason loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. Kobe initially wrote off the wrist as just sore but an examination by Dr. Seven Shin of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic via MRI showed the torn ligament.
What does it mean long term for Bryant and the Lakers is unclear at this time.
According to Dr. Robert Klapper, of Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, Bryant could need three to four weeks of rest to properly heal.
Klapper, speaking with local radio (710 ESPN) indicated depending on the severity of the injury, Kobe may just miss a few days.
