EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) — Kobe Bryant won't be back on the court for the Lakers this season.

The Lakers said Bryant was examined Wednesday by team physician Dr. Steve Lombardo, who determined that the injury that has kept Bryant out of the lineup still hasn't healed. Bryant is recovering from a fractured lateral tibial plateau of his left knee.

Bryant issued a statement through the team saying that this has been a disappointing and frustrating season. He added, "But I appreciate all the support I've received from the Lakers and the fans, and look forward to being back and ready for the start of training camp."
