The Los Angeles Lakers announced Thursday via Twitter that Kobe Bryant fractured a bone in his left knee and is expected to be sidelined for six weeks.

Bryant had played in six games this season since he returned from a torn Achilles tendon suffered last spring. He was averaging 13.8 points, 6.3 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 29.5 minutes per game.

The 35-year-old veteran played 33 minutes on Tuesday night in the Lakers' 96-92 victory over the Menphis Grizzlies and matched his season high with 21 points.

Bryant's loss is the latest among Lakers gaurds. Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar are all sidelined with injuries.
