The Los Angeles Lakers are a game up on the Utah Jazz for the eighth, and final, playoff spot in the NBA’s Western Conference thanks to a 118-116 victory over the Golden State Warriors Friday night. While the win keeps the Lakers in a postseason spot for another another day it’s one that could be extremely costly. A possible torn Achilles tendon suffered by Kobe Bryant brought to a halt any joy over a much needed outcome against Stephen Curry’s Warriors and immediately caused many to wonder if they had witnessed Bryant in purple & gold for the last time.

Given Kobe’s determination and drive, you would have to think the answer to that would be no.

Bryant has played through injuries before, we’ve become accustomed to it. But this one, if Saturday’s MRI results show what most are fearing, would be one that even Kobe would have to acknowledge defeat to. The understandably frustrated future Hall of Famer took to his Facebook page late after Friday’s game to vent about his recent injury.

Any doubts of seeing Bryant back on the court can probably be laid to rest.
