Bad new for the Los Angeles Lakers. They're already tied for the worst record in the Western Conference, and now their star player will miss the rest of the season. After playing six games, Kobe Bryant was sidelined in mid-December after fracturing his left knee. In November, the five-time NBA champion signed a two-year, $48.5 million contract extension. Last season, he missed 19 games because of a torn left Achilles tendon.
