The Los Angeles Lakers are desperately waiting for the return of Center Andrew Bynum.  Bynum was expected to return on December 14th when the Lakers play the Wizards, but that may no longer be a possibility. Due to New York traffic, Phil Jackson had to cancel practice on Saturday, which gave Bynum one less day of preparation for his impending return. The team will evaluate Bynum’s health on Tuesday to see if he is available to play.
