Kobe Bryant to Reveal Surgery Date Soon

Lakers guard Kobe Bryant has announced that Monday he will specify the date he intends to undergo surgery to repair ligament damage in his right pinky finger.

Bryant plans to reveal the news on his website

Laker followers have been awaiting this announcement ever since Bryant decided to postpone having surgery until after the Beijing Olympics, where last month he helped lead Team USA to a gold medal.

The surgery will be performed to repair a torn ligament and an avulsion fracture in Bryant’s right pinky.
