    LOS ANGELES, Calif. Josh Allen Bills Jersey . - Kobe Bryant tore his right rotator cuff in the Los Angeles Lakers latest defeat, the club announced Thursday.Bryant injured his right shoulder in the second half of the Lakers loss at New Orleans on Wednesday night when he drove the baseline for a two-handed dunk.An MRI exam Thursday in San Antonio revealed the tear, and Bryant headed home to Los Angeles while the Lakers prepared to play the Spurs on Friday. The Lakers are expected to release an update on Bryants condition Friday.Lakers coach Byron Scott and the team declined to speculate on the severity of Bryants injury, but many rotator cuff injuries require surgery and several months of rehabilitation. Bryant has a high pain threshold and an impressive ability to play through injury, but the Lakers have already been limiting Bryants playing time to preserve his health beyond this largely lost season for the 16-time NBA champion club.Later Thursday, Bryant was voted into a starting spot in the NBA All-Star game, but the 36-year-old guard could miss the Feb. 15 showcase for the second straight year due to injury. Bryant, a 17-time All-Star selection in his 19-year career, was voted a starter last year despite playing just six games before breaking a bone near his left knee and missing the rest of the season.Bryant has been selected for every All-Star game since missing out his rookie season in 1997. He is a four-time All-Star game MVP and the leading scorer in the events history, passing Michael Jordan in 2012.Bryant briefly returned to the Lakers game in New Orleans and played essentially with one arm after the injury, making a 14-foot jumper with his left hand. He is a right-handed shooter.After the game, Bryant said it felt as if his shoulder came out of joint a little bit on the dunk.I felt fine when I went up, and didnt feel too good when I came down, he said.Bryant downplayed the injury immediately after the game, apparently suspecting he had a torn labrum in his shoulder. Bryant has played through similar injuries before.But the superstars famed ability to play through pain has been seriously challenged in the past three seasons, ever since he tore his Achilles tendon in April 2013.Bryant is the third-leading scorer in NBA history but had played in just six games over the previous 18 months before this season began after recovering from those two major leg injuries.Bryant has sat out eight games in the past month strictly to rest, and he has played recent games under a stringent minutes limit. The Lakers have acknowledged discussions about limiting his minutes even more severely down the stretch for the last-place club, which, at 12-31, is highly unlikely to make a playoff run.Scott has said he is attempting to preserve his superstar through the length of his contract, which extends to next season.Bryant is the NBAs highest-paid player this season, making $23.5 million this year and $25 million next.Bryant is averaging 22.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game while making only 37.2 per cent of his shots.The Lakers already have lost three key players for the entire year. Guard Steve Nash was ruled out with back problems in training camp, while rookie first-round pick Julius Randle broke his leg on opening night. Swingman Xavier Henry tore his Achilles tendon in November and was subsequently waived.

TORONTO -- Randy Carlyle called Nazem Kadris performance Thursday night the best hes seen in a long time. Kadri had three assists extending his point streak to four games as the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Florida Panthers 6-3. Nikolai Kulemin one-timed a Kadri feed at the four-minute mark of the third period for the game-winner. The assist was Kadris 100th career N.H.L. point. "Its a great achievement for myself, but hopefully theres a lot more to come," said Kadri, who has two goals and five assists on his current point steak. "You got to think to yourself when the points are coming easy, its just not all about that, you got to make sure youre good in your D zone, bearing down on face-offs and just allow the coaching staff to put you on the ice in those crucial situations." With the Leafs trailing 2-0 in the first, Kadri set up Cody Franson at 16:49 to get Torontos comeback rolling. Then with the Leafs leading 4-2 in the third, the 23-year-old London, Ont. native set up Joffrey Lupul at 6:22, on a power play, for the insurance marker. "Nazy was a difference maker tonight," said Carlyle. "Thats probably the best game hes played in a long time and at both ends of the rink obviously with the points and distributing the puck, that was making some big league plays." Toronto (29-21-6) also got goals from Mason Raymond, James van Riemsdyk and Tyler Bozak as they extended their win streak on home ice to five games. Florida (21-26-7) got first period goals from Nick Bjugstad and Sean Bergenheim. Dmitry Kulikov had the other Panthers goal. "When a team comes out after theyve lost the period, theyre probably getting some bad words from the coach," said Kulikov. "We knew they were going to come out strong in the second period and we didnt handle it." Scott Clemmensen made 26 saves for his fifth loss of the season. Jonathan Bernier made 35 saves in the win. Toronto won five in a row on home ice from Oct. 22 to Nov. 19. The Leafs have just two regulation losses in their past 11 games.

Bergenheim finished off a 2-on-1 feed from Brad Boyes at 13:50 to give the Panthers a two-goal lead. The assist was the 250th of Boyes career. "We were kind of stunned," said Carlyle. "The first shot on goal was in our net. It set us back a little bit and we werent really moving our feet. We seemed to find a way to get it going." It was all Toronto after that as the Leafs scored five unanswered goals. After Franson cut Floridas lead in the first, the Leafs scored twice in the first minute of the second period to take a 3-2 lead. Raymond scored off the rush, with a wrist shot, glove-side on Clemmensen 27 seconds into the period for his 14th of the season. Van Riemsdyk tipped a Phil Kessel shot past Clemmensen at 57 seconds of the second period, on a power play. With the goal, van Riemsdyk surpassed his previous single-season goals total of 21 set during the 2010-11 season while he was a member of the Philadelphia Flyers. Bozak finished off a 2-on-1 feed from Kessel at 18:37 of the third. "A few weeks ago, it felt like the sky was falling in Toronto," said Kadri of the four-game losing streak. "We understood that it was nothing to panic about, we just rallied around each other. " Added Franson: "Were moving in the right direction and I dont know if you can call it a swagger, but our play is getting better and at the end of the day thats all youre looking to do is progressively progress." Toronto concludes its three-game home stand Saturday against the Ottawa Senators.
