Kobe Undergoes A “Successful” Surgery For Torn Achilles Heel

kobe-bryant-injury-torn-achillesLos Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant may need to wait for at least six months to recover from his torn Achilles tendon. The team announced Saturday that Bryant underwent a “successful” surgery and is now waiting for the injury to fully heal.

The Lakers star acquired the injury in their game against the Golden State Warriors. It happened in the fourth quarter of the team’s 118-116 victory, a feat that would have called for a celebration if not for the incident.

When asked if Bryant will be back for next season, his trainer Gary Vitti said on Twitter, “that’s the plan.” Bryant has previously stated that he could be playing for his last season next year.

According to Nate “Tiny” Archibald, a three-time All-NBA First Teamer, six-time All-Star, NBA champion, and Naismith Hall of Fame member, Bryant’s injury won’t end his career.
