This is a big blow to one of the leagues most surprising teams this year. Bledsoe has helped the Suns to a 21-13 record, while averaging 18 points per game. Their is a glimmer of hope for Phoenix though, they have one of the deepest young rosters in the NBA, led by PG Goran Dragic. If they can at least go .500 while Bledsoe is out, they will still have a good chance at a playoff push.
This is extremely disappointing for Laker fans and Kobe himself. He was just finding his groove and now he has to miss some more extended time. That’s also if it heals correctly. Hopefully this isn’t a lingering issue Kobe has the rest of the year because the Lakers have no hope for the playoffs, without him. Playoffs were a long shot even with Bryant. Let’s hope the “Black Mamba” can come back 100%, because the NBA isn’t the same without him suiting up every night.
