Lakers' Bynum will try to play tonight against Portland

Bynum_275 Lakers center Andrew Bynum has been slowed by food poisoning but plans to play Friday against Portland.

Bynum did not attend the team's shoot-around Friday morning after complaining of illness. He thinks he got sick after eating salmon in San Francisco.

"It wasn't done but I ate it anyway," he said.

The Lakers played Wednesday at Golden State and stayed the night in San Francisco before heading to Portland on Thursday.

Bynum has been on a tear, averaging 12.7 points and 13.3 rebounds in March. In three games this month, he is averaging 11 points and 15.2 rebounds.
