MAY 07, 2013 11:02a ET
Bryant, who suffered a torn Achilles tendon in his left leg on April 12, will miss 6-9 months with the injury. It is unsure when Bryant will be ready to go -- if at all -- during the 2013-14 NBA season, his 16th with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Bryant made headlines during the Lakers' playoff series loss to the Spurs by live tweeting during Game 1 and also called Pau Gasol in the locker room.
