No important games coming up, so I don’t mind.

L.A. Times: Lakers center Andrew Bynum missed his ninth game because of a strained left Achilles’ tendon, though he pledged to return by a fairly important date — April 18.

“I’m going to play the first game of the playoffs,” he said before the Lakers played Denver, staying back in the locker room with Kobe Bryant, who sat out because of swelling in his right knee.

    Some of you might not agree that it can be classified as 'breaking news' but I thought it was important enough to be.

    This is a good idea from Bynum though. The Lakers have essentially clinched the west's best record and there are no more important games left in the season so might was well take the 1 week break. It will do him all the good and the result is a healthy and ready to go Bynum. I can't wait for the playoffs!
