Looks like Drew is ready to go (at least practicing with the squad that is).

O.C. Register: Phil Jackson said Andrew Bynum will take part in more 2-on-2 or 3-on-3 work Thursday — this time with some of his real teammates.

Jackson said he’ll ask some Lakers to play with and against Bynum on Thursday at a Lakers practice that won’t feature full-scale work. If all continues to go well, Bynum will soon graduate to full-contact work and 5-on-5 practice.

Jackson offered the same conservative timetable for Bynum’s return, again saying he looked forward to “a game or two before the (regular) season is over.”

    Gasol on Bynum

    Gasol is eager to see how Bynum looks in the next week or so.

    “He’s a big piece of our future, our present even,” Gasol said. “In the postseason I think he’s going to have a big impact.”

    oh yea. i’m so glad it’s time to get this LAKESHOW ON THE ROAD!

    The Lakers are not going to catch the Cavs. Stay ahead of Boston and Orlando in the standings, rest the starters and get drew one or two games before the “real season” begins. Wait! DO NOT LET HIM PLAY AGAINST MEMPHIS ON 4/12!

    I agreed, Memphis are a curse for us.

    Rest Kobe.
    Bynum is back and I think it will have a huge impact during the playoffs and at the finals.
    Go Lakers!
