Andrew Bynum: Jammed right ankle, day to day
Pau Gasol's return to the court was a good one Thursday night at Staples- 24 points, 13 rebounds- as the Lakers (wait for it...) ran the Bulls (ha!) by a final score of 108-93. The only sour note? Andrew Bynum left the game midway through the third quarter and didn't return, suffering what was called a jammed right ankle. He's officially listed as day-to-day."I'm gonna see how it feels in the morning," he said, "but I should be okay. No treatment, just ice. I'll be ready for Sunday."
Bynum indicated that not re-entering the game was based less on worries of serious injury and more on the score- with the Lakers up big, there was no reason to screw around. We'll learn more at practice Friday afternoon, but for now there doesn't seem to be overwhelming reason for concern.
More on the game to come.
