Phil Jackson expects Andrew Bynum to practice within at least a week

Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said he doesn't forsee center Andrew Bynum fully practicing with the team until they return from their three-game trip next week to Milwaukee (Tuesday), Detroit (Wednesday) and Minnesota (Friday).

Jackson had said nine days ago that he believed Bynum would return to practice at the end of this week, but Bynum's only activity Saturday entailed shooting exercises with special assistant coach Craig Hodges and medicine-ball exercises with Lakers physical therapist Alex McKechnie. Jackson said Bynum won't be able to practice this week simply because of the team's trip, with Bynum continuing rehabilitation on his surgically repaired right knee.
