twogamesL.A. Times: Andrew Bynum is back, but there’s still one lingering question. Will he hit the same groove he found in the five games before going down because of a torn knee ligament?

Bynum was dominant in that stretch, averaging 26.2 points, 14 rebounds and 3.2 blocked shots a game.

“It can happen, especially if he feels good,” Lakers special assistant coach Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said. “But you never know how that’s going to play out. I’m sure he must have some ‘willies’ just about the fact that [his injury] happened to him like it did. It was really a fluke.”

Bynum had 13 points and six rebounds Friday against Portland, his second game back from a 32-game absence after Kobe Bryant crashed into his right knee. He had 16 points and seven rebounds Thursday against Denver.

“He’s still favoring it a little bit. He’s got that brace on it,” Abdul-Jabbar said. “But he doesn’t seem to be afraid of contact, which is a real key issue.”
