Andrew Bynum sits out Monday's practice

January 31, 2011 |  2:27 pm

After having soreness in his left knee that kept him sidelined for part of the third quarter of the Lakers' 109-96 loss Sunday to the Boston Celtics, Lakers center Andrew Bynum sat out of Mondays' practice to receive further treatment.

The Lakers don't consider the injury serious, and Bynum reentered the game against Boston after team trainer Gary Vitti taped his knee.

"We're hopeful tomorrow," Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said on whether Bynum will play in Tuesday's game against the Houston Rockets. "He says he'll play."
