Well, that didn't take long. 6 games into his return from a torn achilles tendon, Kobe Bryant is out again, this time for an expected six weeks with a fractured tibia.
The Lakers are already without Steve Nash, Steve Blake, and Jordan Farmar; Bryant was playing the point for them over the past few games. Without a real point guard available to them, the Lakers have signed Kendall Marshall from the D-League.
No idea who is going to start tonight against the Wolves--it might be Xavier Henry as the nominal point guard.
A big game for draft prospects last night as Duke beat UCLA. I didn't see it, but:

- Kyle Anderson: 7-13 (1-3 threes), 10 rebs, 7 asst. 5 stl, 6 TO, 15 pts
- Jordan Adams: 4-10 (0-3 threes) 5 rebs, 1 asst. 2 stl, 1 blk 10 pts
