Bynum “may very well” start when he returns; Denver being the earliest return

    Hoopsworld’s Eric Pincus chimed in with a small Bynum update during his live blog vs. the Clippers.

    Hoopsworld: Phil indicated that Bynum may very well start when he returns. Jackson wouldn’t say Lamar Odom would go back to the bench, simply because he didn’t want to be nailed down to it. He said that he wants Bynum to play right after warm-ups instead of sitting and getting cold. He’ll probably go about 6-7 minutes until he gets his conditioning back.

      dont start bynum in the playoffs! he should come off the bench and give the 2nd unit some stability and toughness.

      Anyone who understands rehab and this type of injury knows (as apparently Jackson does) starting Bynum and moving Odom back to the bench mob helps in more ways than one. Firstly is the physical aspect of not cooling down on the bench after pre game warm ups. Bynum will be more effective. Secondly, Odom running the second unit with Luke means more ball movement. The bench does really well when they can move the ball around. Watch the games before Bynum went down and you’ll see what I mean. Finally, Bynum can crash the offensive boards opposite Pau and Kobe can create easy basket opportunities for Drew. I guess Jackson IS a good coach.
