The Lakers continued their downward spiral, finishing Week 14 without a win and a six-game losing streak.
First the Lakers lost with a poor second half on Tuesday against the Indiana Pacers, 104-92.
Al Jefferson simply dominated on Friday in the Lakers' 110-100 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats.
Before the Pacers' win, Indiana Coach Frank Vogel said the Lakers are in an "impossible" situation with so many injuries.
Bryant admitted he felt "down," missing more time as his team struggles. His injury will also keep him from the All-Star game, despite the fans voting him in as a Western Conference starter.
The Lakers have started six different starting point guards this season but none have winning records. The closest are Bryant and Nash, both at .500 when starting at the point.
Magic Johnson criticized the Lakers, specifically owner/executive Jim Buss and Coach Mike D'Antoni.
Eventually Johnson decided to cease fire, but not until after his appearance on the "Tonight Show."
With the Pacers, Bynum joins one of the top contenders in the Eastern Conference.
The security guard who stole championship rings at the Lakers' practice facility was sentenced to jail.
