Reporters in print, on the Internet and on TV and radio have referred to one of Kobe Bryant’s injuries as either a broken right index finger or an avulsion fracture (the technical term) of the right index finger. They have been reporting that because that’s what the Lakers have been saying about Bryant’s finger. Until today, that is. Today, the team said the break or fracture has healed. Now, Bryant is suffering from arthritis in the finger. So, he still is suffering from left ankle, right index finger and right knee injuries.
