The Lakers suffered their worst record in franchise history last year thanks in large part to Kobe Bryant hurting himself again. This time, he tore his rotator cuff in the Lakers 96-80 loss on January 21st versus the Pelicans, ending his season. While severing as a guest analyst for game three of the NBA Finals, Bryant reveled that he plans to start shooting again in 4-6 months.
Per Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News:
“The strength in my shoulder is getting better and better by the day. Hopefully, I’ll be shooting the ball in a month and month and a half. Then I’ll feel like a fish being put back in water.”
Bryant averaged 22.3 points, 5.6 assists, and 5.7 rebounds per game in 35 games for the Lakers during the 2014-2015 season. He is expected to be ready for the start of the 2015-2016 NBA season.
