L.A. Times: For the briefest of moments, Coach Phil Jackson offered visions of a hale, hearty Lakers lineup in the near future when asked about Andrew Bynum’s progress.

“He was on the floor shooting shots [without jumping]. . . . He looked relatively active for his condition,” Jackson said Tuesday. “He was doing pretty well.”

Bynum, however, won’t be returning from a torn medial collateral ligament in his right knee any time soon. His progress is all relative to a timetable that will keep him sidelined until at least March 30, and possibly as late as April 27.

“Until he’s on the floor some time in March, we won’t know anything about that,” Jackson said. “The healing aspect still takes a while, so that’s still something going on. When we feel like he’s healed, then to do the therapy and exercises, that’s going to take a while.”

Bynum, out since Jan. 31, has not done much beyond flat-footed shooting. He is waiting for swelling to decrease in the knee before beginning to ride a stationary bike.

    Dude, don’t F up your knee by thinking you can be on the floor…sit your ass down and rest it. Obviously you’re injury prone and right now is not the time to be on the court.

    how is he injury prone? Kobe tackled him, any player would go down if they got hit like that, and the injury last year was a freak accident.

    He’s not injury prone, just REALLY REALLY unlucky. The only thing that worries me about the injuries is that every time he starts going he gets hurt, i’m worried that it will hurt him mentally

    No $hit!!!! especially because they’ve got no more big men we can take as an offering in case any more of our bigs go down the next time. We should just not play them and chalk them all up as losses! LOL!
