Good news!

O.C.Register: Injured Lakers center Andrew Bynum will begin riding a stationary bike Thursday, signaling the beginning of his rehabilitation from a torn medial collateral ligament of the right knee. The prognosis is that Bynum will miss 8-12 weeks.

Lakers spokeman John Black said Monday that Bynum would remain in Los Angeles during the All-Star break, rather than travel back home to New Jersey.

    Get healthy soon Bynum, the sooner we can get him back the better. I hope he can pick up where he left off and get some regular season games done before the playoffs to get that confidence back from injury.

    Get back soon Drew, you’re young and strong. Younger people heal faster.

    Bynum, Stay focus on your rehab.

    I bet he will be back at least 3 to 4 weeks before the playoffs.
    Good luck man!

    If we can get Drew about 5-10 games of regular season playing, he’ll be alright for the playoffs. The team has responded really well to the situation. A real sign of experience and character. Love the Lakers!

    Take your time Bynum..we need you 100% so you can give it all out on the court..if it’s bothering you stay don’t convince yourself that it’s fine..think about the future.it’s more important
