This makes you wonder – is the brace really hindering his play or his his knee truly not ready?
NBC Los Angeles: Andrew Bynum was asked how his knee was feeling and if it was a factor at all in his slow starts during these playoffs, and he admitted that it’s still a concern. There apparently isn’t any swelling or pain, but the Lakers center said Tuesday he lacks the explosion and strength he enjoyed before his knee injury. And that brace doesn’t help.
“It’s just not ready,” he said. “I’m probably about 85-90 percent.”
