Kobe Bryant Injury: Lakers Star Guard Eager To Get Wrist Healthy

Kobe Bryant is a warrior on the court and seldom does the NBA veteran of sixteen years ever miss a game due to an injury. Despite multiple torn ligaments and tendons in his wrist, Bryant continues to play for the Lakers, even though he is in clear pain on the court. He will suit up for Thursday as Los Angeles takes on the Knicks, and he will likely continue to do so until the wrist heals.

Bryant is determined to get full strength back in his wrist and is seemingly always looking for a chance to heal the injury whenever possible. Take this for example:

If that isn't the sign of a true veteran of the game who wants to play, I don't know what is. Nothing will stop Kobe as long as he can play, even if he isn't anywhere near 100% physically. So far in 2011, you wouldn't even know Bryant is dealing with a bad wrist. He is averaging 27.7 points, 5.7 assists and 6.7 rebounds per game. Pretty decent.
