Kobe Bryant suffers torn Achilles in Lakers’ win over Warriors (VIDEO)


Late in the Lakers’ win over the Warriors on Friday, Kobe Bryant left the game with what was later diagnosed as an Achilles tear that will keep him sidelined for the rest of the season.

You can see the injury take place in the video clip above, though there really isn’t all that much to see. Bryant fell down on a drive with 3:08 remaining, and hobbled to the free throw line to sink two foul shots before he was subbed out for good for the final time this season.
