Loose Canons just reported that Kobe is day-to-day, and he hopes to play tomorrow.

At first Kobe felt a “pop” sensation but after further review, the knee is just suffering from a simple hyper extended knee. There is nothing wrong with his ACL or anything like that! Thank God!

They’re reporting that he is going to try to go out and play tomorrow! If not, he’ll definitely be ready for opening night!

Glad to hear he is alright!

    Oh man scared the hell outta me for sure, I made a thread about it right away expressing my worries. Please be ok. Shouldn’t be anything too big, it’s just scary anything like this happens.

  • domz

  • Lakers 24 7

    I was scared to log on and see a “BREAKING NEWS” blog….it doesnt seem that bad though…he should be ok

  • lakerschamps09

    umm this sucks if he gonna be out for long time…wtf man… damn injuries.. i hope hes ok and just hope he can play at 100 percent…

  • http://ld2k.com Chris Manning

    This sort of thing will have to be looked at closely, I don’t think it’s going to keep him out for TOO LONG. But we’ll need to hear more in the morning obviously.

    FCK!!!!!

  • jinROH88

    who was the other player?

  • http://ld2k.com Chris Manning

    Kobe told Ireland he’ll “be alright,” but doesn’t want to talk about it. He came out in street clothes and looked frustrated. Also take a look at this:

    Hyperextended knee injuries: (from Sports Medical Journal)

    How to treat:
    Avoiding sports and other activities that could further injure the knee is vital as the knee heals. In most cases, resting the leg for two to four weeks is recommended depending on the extent of the injury.

    Dammit he’s Kobe, please be back in a week…….

  • LAKERNATION

    Seriously tho for this to be our year we, AND I REALLY MEAN IT!!!!!!! we need to have a complete no injury season. That is what has killed us the about past 4 seasons. It first started in 05 with KOBE and LAMAR’s injury that made them miss a lot of games and that caused us a trip to the playoffs, then in 06 CHRIS going out with the ankle injury, then in 07 I know we had injury problems but for some reason I don’t remember what happened, then we all know what happened last season with BIG DREW and TREVOR’s season enders. So that is why I pray the “curse” you could called it that, is out of LA. PLEASE no injuries. So with all that said I hope this issue with KB is not serious at all and THE MACHINE will be back and still knocking em down and that lock down D back to the PURPLE and GOLD.

    Can I get a AMEN.

  • baltimoresbest01

    no way. this cant be happening

  • Lakers 24 7

    Knowing Kobe, he is tough. They said he’s listed as day-to-day. Fortunately enough, the season doesn’t start for another week, and I think he’ll be ready for the season opener.

    FLYING MONKEY WARRIOR!!!!!!

    Our team is good enough without kobe, we only need him for the playoffs…

  • http://jamieinsider.celebuzz.com Jamie Spears Insider

    >_< Kobe!!!!!

  • PGMVP

    Kobe is fine the fact that he walked by himself means it’s not that serious.

  • Papa-101

    God i hope it’s nothing serious. Of course this has to happen just after we get Bynum back and 95% healthy!

  • http://TheVerveNerve.com Billy Kupchak

    Kobe will be back soon because of me! :cool:

  • e

    F*CK

  • kobethegreat

    its kobe hell be alright hell play thru anything…

  • RAZOR RAMON

    when do we get our vittiz?

  • daboss1849

    Yea we fukked without kobe!!!!

  • brettbutler48

    Bynums new nickname should be ‘The Royal Flush’ It just fits him how he dunks the ball, totally smooth and dominating.

  • Michael_23

    It’s Sun Yue’s fault! Man he kept missing shots, even 3 free throws. Kobe was so frustrated in him missing that he was overaggressive and banged knees with Powell. Man, I had high praise for this guy, but this guy is actually worse than Coby Karl. D-League it is …

  • Jack Nicholson

    wow. my carbs stopped flowing for AHWILE there. jee. somebody get derek fisher’s healing buddha powers.

  • e

    sun yue does suck! and why is it that powell cant finish at the rim? we dont need another kwame..we’re fine with mihm and mbenga..id rather take giles at this point…and please..no minutes for sun yue this year..PLEASE!!

  • purple’n’gold

    sun yue looks lost out there , i think the days that he got sick and miss training camp are hunting him. cant even make free throws. he needs to study more the triangle and relax when he is on the court.

  • DCLAKER

    Jordan has made a believer out of me…HE’S THE TRUTH!!!

  • Michael_23

    Any news yet? … Please don’t be like Bynum’s injury (knock on wood)

  • mr.laker19

    Jordan and bynum are the future, Kobe is our present and we need him back (get well NOW!) and skull gang all day fresh

  • jp

    no news yet??

  • LET THERE BE LIGHT

    I DONT KNOW WHY PEOPLE THINK ITS “OVER” WHEN KOBE IS OUT. WE ACTUALLY HAVE A GOOD TEAM WHEN HE’S NOT THERE. BUT IT IS GREAT WHEN HE IS THERE. SO I THINK WE DONT NEED TO WORRY. AT LEAST HE WALKED ON HIS OWN POWER AND WASNT CARRIED OFF LIKE THE BIGGEST ACT PAUL “CRY BABY” PIERCE. HE WAS PLAYIN AROUND TO MUCH OUT THERE AND HE GOT HURT. KOBE NEEDS TO BE SERIOUS STOP PLAYIN AROUND OR JUS SIT SO HE DOESNT GET INJURED IN THE PRE SAESON WE NEED HIM WHEN IT COUNTS.

  • DCLAKER

    LETTHEREBELIGHT (that would be a cool hiphop name),you brought a very interesting point…Pierce got carried off the court,WHEN HE HAD ONE MORE KNEE TO STAND ON,then gets wheelchaired to the lockerroom and comes back to play,hmmmmm.

    Kobe walks off on his own accord.

  • Lakersfan9

    Good to hear he’s alright, but he really ought to sit out at least tomorrow, if not the rest of the pre-season. There’s really no point to risk further injury, but I’m sure Kobe, Vitti, Phil, etc. will make the right call.

  • Michael_23

    Glad to see hear it, I remember after Bynum could hurt he said he’ll be all right. … Until he woke up the next day and got an MRI exam. That’s what I was afraid of. But Kobe is a true warrior. Bad pinkie or not, bad knee or not, he’ll go out and be the league MVP.

  • DCLAKER

    CJ Giles aaaaaand Joe Crawford waived.

  • Mitch4Pres

    THANK YOU GOD

  • LET THERE BE LIGHT

    DCLAKER. this is why i think the celtics SHIP was fixed. come on game 7 with the atl hawk…please. they need the celtics to come up like the old days. they needed to make that income thats why the series were so long. they new if they get the fans back they will get that $$$$$$. The league nows that the lakers will always be in the fight for a SHIP but didnt know when celtics would get another chance at it. The whole thing was like a movie script. with injuries, comin back like rocky balboa and comebacks. please the lakers had a tougher road to the ship than the celtics. o yea i HATE KENDRICK PERKINS I HOPE BYNUM SERVES HIM. THINK ABOUT WHAT I HAVE SAID.

  • west213

    AHHHH SO HAPPY, DAMNN HE SHOULD REST THIS WEEK BEFORE THE REAL SEASON STARTS. HE WENT TROUGH A LOT THIS SUMMER, including the Olympic Games, he should take a nice vacation.
