LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will be out for the remainder of the season, the team confirmed Wednesday.

Bryant will not be with the Los Angeles Lakers on the team’s upcoming road trip, as he stays behind to have his fractured knee re-examined.

Bryant, who is on his 18th season with the Lakers, believes changes need to be made throughout the organization, not from the roster.

“You have to start with Jim and Jeanie[Buss], and how that relationship plays out,” said Bryant. “It starts there in having clear direction, clear authority. Then it goes down to the coaching staff -what they want to D’Antoni.  It has start from the top.”

Bryant, who was elected to — but unable to play in — his 16th All Star game this year, has only played in six games this season.

With stars such as Steve Nash also sidelined, the Lakers are just 22-42 for the season.

The team, which suffered a record loss to the Clippers last week, has 18 games left and is not eligible to make it to the playoffs.

Bryant signed a two-year contract extension believed to be worth nearly $50 million in November of last year.
