Kobe Bryant Injury: Lakers Superstar To See Neurologist Over Broken Nose

If you're looking for a resilient athlete, Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers is the guy who would probably fits the bill the best. Kobe has been injured over and over again, and he somehow finds a way to start playing by next week.

However, his current issue might cause him some problems. Bryant got his nose broken by Dwyane Wade during the 2012 NBA All-Star Game, and now it might hamper his ability to play in the near future. Mike Trudell reported the following regarding Kobe's injury.

Kobe Bryant went to see ear, nose and throat specialist Dr. John Rehm on Tuesday after suffering a broken nose at Sunday’s All-Star game, and because Bryant is experiencing further symptoms, Dr. Rehm recommended an MRI and that Bryant see a neurologist.

The fact that Bryant has had to see this many specialists gives you the feeling that this is not your run-of-the-mill injury. Usually Kobe is able to shake off any tough injury, but there does seem to be a lot of double-checking. Then again, broken noses suck, so it's better to be through than not.

Is this an injury that could finally sideline Bryant? Although no one really knows how severe the issue is, I'd have to lean toward no, because if I say yes, Kobe will just go out there and prove us all wrong.
