The Los Angeles Lakers' all-star shooting guard Kobe Bryant is out again after suffering a knee injury during the Lakers win over the Grizzlies Tuesday evening. Although Bryant appeared to be bothered by the injury in the fourth quarter, he still decided to continue playing.

Kobe had recently returned to active duty on the L.A. roster December 8th, 2013 and was just starting to play like himself. According to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters via her Twitter account, he's liable to be out at least 6 weeks after an MRI was taken this morning of his knee.

This is a devasting blow to the Lakers as they are already down multiple players in the backcourt. Other guards currently on the injured list are Steve Blake, all-star Steve Nash and Jordan Farmar.
