Report: Lakers’ Andrew Bynum Day To Day With ‘Moderate’ Ankle Sprain
Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum will be listed officially as day to day with a “moderate” left ankle sprain, according to Brian Kamenetzky of ESPN Los Angeles.
Bynum suffered the injury late in the first quarter of last night’s win over the Golden State Warriors. He landed awkwardly on the foot of teammate Josh McRoberts and required treatment from team trainer Gary Vitti. Bynum did not return, but X-rays came back negative and the team decided he didn’t need an MRI.
Bynum left the Staples Center on his own power without crutches. He said he felt fine, but it’s currently unclear whether he’ll play tomorrow at home against the New Jersey Nets.
The Lakers’ 24-year-old center has had a career year, averaging personal bests of 18.3 points and 12.1 rebounds. He’s also remained impressively healthy — he’s started 49 of the team’s 53 games, his only four absences due to a suspension at the start of this season.
