Pros and Cons of Kobe Bryant Sitting Out Rest of LA Lakers Season

Kobe Bryant’s injuries might force him to miss the rest of the season, an occurrence that comes with positives and negatives.

Bryant rehabbed from an Achilles tear he suffered at the end of 2012-13 and rejoined the Los Angeles Lakers for all of six games this campaign. The former league MVP then fractured the lateral tibial plateau in his knee and is at risk of missing the remainder of the year.

Bryant could still return and play in a few games (give or take 10-15 contests), but it’s entirely possible that the pros outweigh the cons as it pertains to sitting out the year.
