LeBron James, Lakers players react on Twitter to Kobe Bryant's injury

As news spread around the NBA on Thursday that Kobe Bryant would miss six weeks with a knee injury, players around the league took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Bryant suffered a fracture of the lateral tibial plateau in his left knee in a win Tuesday over the Memphis Grizzlies.

He'll be sidelined until about the end of January.
