Kobe Bryant Suffers Torn Rotator Cuff

Kobe Bryant won't be starting in his record 17th-consecutive NBA All Star Game now.

NBA Tonight

In all likelihood, a bad season for the Los Angeles Lakers is about to get worse, again.

Kobe Bryant suffered a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder during the second half of Wednesday night’s loss to New Orleans, reports also indicate Bryant has been dealing with an injury to the same shoulder for much of the season. While it has not become official quite yet, the injury is expected to end Bryant’s 2014-2015 season and also puts the veteran’s career in LA in doubt.

Bryant played just six games last season after recovering from Achilles and knee injuries. Last night it was announced that the five-time NBA Champion and two-time NBA Finals MVP was voted in as a Western Conference All Star Game starter for a record seventeenth consecutive season.

Bryant has played in 35 games this season and is averaging 22.3 points despite shooting a career-low 37.3 percent from the field.

Bryant is No. 3 on the all-time NBA scoring list.
