Kobe Bryant left during the 4th quarter of Friday night’s game against the Golden State Warriors with only 42 seconds left.
Leaving before the final buzzer is out of character for the 34-year-old five-time champion Laker. Such a move is worrisome because it likely means Bryant’s injury is serious.
The Lakers organization stated after the 118-16 LA victory that they suspect Bryant suffered a left achilles tear. Bryant will undergo an MRI Saturday to confirm.
