Andrew Bynum Has Sore Knee After Feeling Twinge Against Toronto

Lakers’ center Andrew Bynum has a long history of knee problems. After finally coming back to the Lakers last week for his first games since last year’s NBA Finals, it seems that Bynum might have another problem.

June 15, 2010 - Los Angeles, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES - epa02204195 Los Angeles Lakers' Andrew Bynum wraps up his leg before his game against the Boston Celtics at the NBA Finals at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, USA, 15 June 2010. The Celtics lead the series 3-2.


According to the center he felt a ‘twinge’ while going for a rebound during Sunday’s game in Toronto. While Bynum says that the injury is nothing, it is still something that the fans aren’t going to want to hear. Bynum’s history of injuries, particularly knee injuries, makes even the smallest discomfort a possible problem.

“I have to live with it,” Bynum said. “It’s not going to change. So, there’s nothing to be nervous about now. You just have to expect that that’s going to happen. But I can’t wait to start working with my trainer when we get back home so I can get a little bit of my explosion back. I feel like I can’t really jump right now…As of right now, I feel like I’m kind of glued to the floor.”

This poses a problem for the Lakers, who have been playing much better with Bynum in the line-up than they were with Bynum on the sideline. The effects of his return have been tremendous, especially those on the play of Pau Gasol. The extra rest that Bynum can provide to players like Gasol and Lamar Odom helps keep the Lakers starters fresh and alert, something that had been lacking before Bynum returned to the squad.

For now we’ll have to wait and see if this turns out to be a mere ‘twinge,’ or something bigger.
