    Post Kobe Bryant likely out 6-9 months with torn Achilles tendon

    Kobe Bryant will have surgery Saturday afternoon to repair the torn Achilles tendon in his left leg and his recovery timetable is expected to take 6-9 months, according to longtime Los Angeles Lakers trainer Gary Vitti.

    "When something like this happens, everybody wants to know why and there's not always a reason why. If you look at our season, it's been a nightmare," Vitti said following Lakers practice Saturday. "We had a player come in with a surgery, which was Dwight Howard. Then we had Steve Nash break his leg. Then we had Steve Blake have an abdominal surgery. Then we had Jordan Hill with a hip surgery. Then we had Metta (World Peace) with a knee surgery. We also had Dwight with a (torn) labrum in his shoulder. Antawn Jamison will have surgery after the season is over on his wrist. So, when you try to look at the whys, it's bad luck."

    Vitti said Bryant would be immobilized up to a month or more following surgery. If Bryant were to recover on the short end of the timetable Vitti provided, he could be able to play for the start of the 2013-14 season.

    "That's the plan," Vitti said.

    Bryant's injury was described as a "complete rupture" by Vitti.

    "It's gone," said Vitti. "So, it has to be sewn back together."

    This season has been a total disaster. Is there an "undo" button?

    Wishing Kobe the best. You could see the disappointment in his face. Tough to see him go down like that. Hopefully the recovery goes well.

    The Lakers really need to stop doing these "Dream Team" things as it doesn't work. In fact outside of something like the Heat it doesn't really work in any sport. Most of the time it turns into a disaster.

    I hope that isn't the way Kobes career ends. I think he will come back and play well. I hope he doesn't rush it.
