Kobe Bryant suffered a probable torn Achilles' late in Friday's game, a potentially season-ending injury for both the Lakers and their star.

The Lakers said he probably had a torn Achilles' tendon and would have an MRI exam Saturday.

"MRI, surgery, then recovery," Kobe said, teary-eyed and emotional.

Bryant scored 34 points while playing much of the second half in obvious pain from his injured left leg, and the Los Angeles Lakers rallied in the final minutes without him to stay in the playoff picture with a 118-116 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Friday night.

Stephen Curry scored 47 points in a dynamic performance for the Warriors, but Los Angeles played just enough late defense to hang on for a crucial win.
