Pretty straightforward: If Kobe needs surgery, he's done for the year. That'll officially be determined by the Laker team docs tomorrow

Ramona Shelburne

Kobe first injured this shoulder in the preseason, according to sources. Has been playing w/ it all year. It just got worse last night

Also, Jeremy Lin (216,246) finished ninth in NBA All-Star voting among Western Conference guards.

Congrats to former Laker, Pau Gasol for being voted in as an NBA All-Star starter for the first time in his career. lakersnation.com/kobe-bryant-vo…

Mike Bresnahan

Pau Gasol selected a starter for the East All-Stars. Fifth time he's been in the game. Joined by LeBron, Wall, Lowry and Carmelo in the East

Mike Trudell

Of course, whether or not Kobe (shoulder) can play in the All-Star game will depend on what we hear after he consults team doctors tomorrow.

Bill Oram

Kobe, of course, just voted into his 17th career All-Star Game. Will he play in it? Tough to imagine, but time will tell.

Mike Trudell

Kobe Bryant was named an All-Star for the 17th time, which includes every season except his '96 rookie year ('99 lockout meant no game).

Ryan Ward

Kobe Bryant named an All-Star starter for the West. Stephen Curry, Blake Griffin, Anthony Davis & Marc Gasol also named starters.

Gary Lee

Mike Bresnahan

Also starting on the West All-Stars: Steph Curry, Blake Griffin, Anthony Davis and Marc Gasol.

Mike Bresnahan

Kobe Bryant selected an NBA All-Star for the 17th time. Whether or not he can play in the game in a few weeks is the great unknown.

Gary Lee

This could be Kobe's third consecutive season-ending injury. Achilles: Two clutch free throws Knee: Clutch three Shoulder: Left-handed shot

Gary Lee

If this was another lower-body injury, I could see Kobe retiring early, but I don't think we've seen the last of him.

Gary Lee

MT @Magic Johnson: Lakers Nation: Sad day for fans, as we learned Kobe Bryant has suffered a torn rotator cuff. I wish him a speedy recovery!

Kevin Ding

Is Kobe done? Fundamentally, I can't see him doing anything but going out on his terms.

Bill Oram

I will never be able to watch “Daddy’s Home” without thinking, “That’s the night Kobe ripped up his shoulder.”

So some rogue equipment manager or ball boy deflated 11 of 12 game balls without Brady or Belichick knowing? OK.

Janis Carr

He never does RT @Baxter Holmes: Vanessa Bryant just tweeted this IG pic: instagram.com/p/yK93JGGIZl/ http://t.co/hXNdU4xMa2

Mike Bresnahan

The latest on Kobe's rotator cuff: A full tear likely means season-ending surgery. If it's partial, he could still play, but with pain.

Kamenetzky Brothers

Isn't #flexball essentially what the Patriots are accused of using? BK

Kamenetzky Brothers

"I don't want to take things too far astray, Tom, but if I might, I have a question about the inflation level of the balls on Sunday..." BK

Kamenetzky Brothers

Does anyone know the PSI of the ball being snapped by the Patriot on Brady's hat? How deep does this go? BK

Bill Oram

ASG starters will be announced tonight. Kobe will be among them. Very difficult to imagine him on the floor for an exhibition in three weeks

Bill Oram

Will be interesting how long Kobe has been battling tear. He said his shoulder had been "bothering (him) for a while."

Bill Oram

MRI reveals torn rotator cuff for Kobe. There's good reason to think this is the end of his season. ocregister.com/lakers/kobe-64…

Janis Carr

Kobe shrugged off his shoulder injury last night. Wonder if he thinks differently now that he faces more rehab

Kevin Ding

Kobe wasn't too concerned last night, but as noted in column, he never thought knee was fractured last season either: bleacherreport.com/articles/23387…

Kobe Bryant has a torn rotator cuff. es.pn/1uzfEVC

Kevin Ding

Kobe said last night about right shoulder: "Always given me a little bit of problems." This season: "Bothering me a little bit for awhile."

Kamenetzky Brothers

The Lakers have announced the preliminary results of Kobe's MRI- torn right rotator cuff. No word on his status for Spring Training. BK

Kevin Ding

Carmelo had torn rotator cuff in 2013 in non-shooting shoulder, chose not to have offseason surgery. Kobe's is shooting shoulder, though.

Gary Lee

Get well soon, Kobe.

Janis Carr

Kobe has a torn rotator cuff, although Lakers don't say how severe. Could be the end of his season ...or not

Kevin Ding

Not specified how significant the tear of Kobe's rotator cuff is. Not all tears require surgery; most are first conservatively treated.

Ryan Ward

Hate to say it, but this could be the injury that shuts Kobe Bryant down for the season. #Lakers

Mike Bresnahan

Kobe Bryant has a torn rotator cuff. He is returning to Los Angeles today for further evaluation. Not good for Kobe. Or the Lakers.

Ryan Ward

MRI results are in and it doesn’t look good for Kobe Bryant. Kobe has a torn rotator cuff. #Lakers

Byron Scott said the Lakers have yet to get results of Kobe's MRI on his shoulder. Stay tuned later in the day for an update.

Bill Oram

Tarik Black participated in Lakers morning practice but is listed as questionable for Friday vs. Spurs

Uber driver in New Orleans says Kobe should retire, but won’t because he “doesn’t want to give up the crowd.”

Bill Oram

In the past, Bryant could be described as a "one-man army." Tonight he was more like a "one-army man."

Bill Oram

My cab driver today asked about former Pelican Xavier Henry. Was very sad to learn he was hurt, has been waived.

Bill Oram

You can see Bryant grab his right shoulder following that big two-handed jam in the third quarter. youtube.com/watch?v=ba8RqG…

Bill Oram

Kobe: "There’s no place like winning in Los Angeles. This is the greatest brand in the world.”

Kevin Ding

Kobe said his shoulder has been bothering him for awhile and was aggravated on his dunk. "Kind of came out (of the joint) a little bit."

Bill Oram

Bryant: "The reality is, I’m doing some pretty phenomenal things in 30 minutes. My body’s not that f---ed up."

Bill Oram

Kobe said he averaged 40 points on a torn labrum. He averaged 40 in Feb. '03, but best I can tell he didn't suffer labrum tear until April.

Kevin Ding

Kobe: “We make a lot of it, but the reality is I’m doing some pretty phenomenal things in 30 minutes. My body’s not THAT f----d up.”

Mike Bresnahan

Kobe also lauded track record of Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak: "It's phenomenal. So much so that the league had to protest the (Paul) trade."

Mike Bresnahan

Kobe said what his pitch to free agents would be: "It's the best organization in the world. There's no place like winning in Los Angeles."

Kevin Ding

Kobe described right shoulder as "achy." Wasn't too stressed about it. Said he'll go get therapy.

Kamenetzky Brothers

I don’t recall giving Durant a vote, anyway. AK RT @mdotbrown: Slim Reaper really was the perfect nickname.

Janis Carr

Worthy: "It's a weird time too....Your mind is telling you to do certain things and your body is saying, 'Hell no we're done."

Mike Bresnahan

Kobe didn't seem too concerned about his shoulder. Confirmed it was indeed on his third-quarter dunk vs. Cunningham.

Janis Carr

Worthy: "All I can say is Father Time keeps hanging around...and he pulls you back in."

Janis Carr

Kobe: "Ive played with a torn labrum before." Also said he has played left-handed when he had a separated shoulder

Kamenetzky Brothers

No word yet as to whether Kobe's pre-MRI, all-shoulder workout will be 90 minutes, or a more sensible 60. AK

Janis Carr

Kobe nodded when asked if he hurt his shoulder on the dunk.

Janis Carr

Kobe: "Tried to figure out what made it hurt....couldnt find it."

Janis Carr

Kobe on what's next: "Ice, little bit of therapy." Doesn't sound too concerned

Janis Carr

Meanwhile, the Anaheim Ducks roll on...leading Calgary, 3-0.

Bill Oram

Kobe carrying backpack with straps over both shoulders. So that’s something.

Janis Carr

Hmmm RT @LakeShowLive: Vitti: "Worried it might be a partial tear of the labrum.." Scott: "Sore shoulder. He'll be all right."

Janis Carr

BScott: "I don't know if he (Kobe) thought he would be that limited....He always says he has two arms."

Janis Carr

BScott: "Wanted to see if he would use it." Said Kobe said "its all right" about his shoulder.

Mike Bresnahan

Kobe will have an MRI tomorrow on his right shoulder. Lakers calling it a "sore shoulder" right now.

Janis Carr

Great RT @Baxter Holmes: Byron says Kobe will get an MRI tomorrow on his sore right shoulder.
