Lakers' Bynum will try to play tonight against Portland
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.
