ESPN had reported earlier, via a tweet, that Kobe Bryant was likely going to miss the remainder of the playoffs according to Chris Broussard.

Update: ESPN has since taken down the tweet; however, there must be some substance to the rumor. Kobe Bryant has refused any tests including MRIs, x-rays, etc. In all likeliness this is a severe ankle sprain that requires attention.

He's obviously hurt and Chris Broussard has broken stories in the past, this could be a reality. If it is true, this will be a nightmare for the Lakers as their interior presence has not shown desire or heart and they were outmatched by Chris Paul.

This injury could be devastating to the Los Angeles Lakers championship run, stay tuned for more information.
