The Los Angeles Lakers have made headlines in the NBA offseason-for the wrong reasons.
First, head coach Phil Jackson retires and his replaced by Mike Brown, a move that the superstar player didn't appear thrilled with.
Then they have a proposed three-way deal that would have added Chris Paul to the team with stars Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol going elsewhere-nixed. Then they trade Odom to Dallas and now Kobe Bryant is having wrist issues on his shooting hand on top of the fact that he's about to go through a divorce.
Bryant has a torn wrist ligament and did not play in Wednesday night's 108-103 loss against the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Lakers have listed Bryant's status as day to day.
But multiple media reports suggest he could miss 2-3 weeks.
Jason Kapono started at shooting guard in Bryant's place.
Bryant suffered the right wrist injury, his shooting hand, in the Lakers' 114-95 loss to the Clippers on Monday when he fell to the floor in the third quarter after having his shot attempt blocked by DeAndre Jordan.
Results show that Bryant has a torn lunotriquetral ligament. The lunotriquetral ligament is a band of tissue that connects bones in the wrist.
