Awwww, man! Not this again!
L.A. Times: The Lakers continue to fly in a holding pattern around Andrew Bynum, their starting center out for the foreseeable future while still feeling pain because of a strained left Achilles’ tendon.
Things are “about the same” Bynum said in a brief interview Tuesday as he left the Lakers’ training facility in El Segundo.
The Lakers have five regular-season games left before playoffs begin.
“There’s discomfort after he does a certain amount of exercise,” Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said after Tuesday’s practice. “I’m just not holding my breath on a timetable. Obviously we’d like to have him play a couple games at the end of the [regular] season, but this morning I told him if that’s not possible, we’ll take whatever we can get in the playoffs at that time.”
