So when is Andrew Bynum coming back, exactly? Drew had this to say to some reporters…
L.A.Times: He eased on to a restaurant for lunch, parked his car, sat down and stretched out his long legs just before two female Lakers fans asked about the torn medial collateral ligament Bynum suffered Jan. 31 against the Memphis Grizzlies. They got an autograph and a picture before asking the question that has been on the minds of all Lakers fans.
“When are you coming back?” one asked.
“Two weeks,” Bynum said, smiling. “Hopefully.”
That question has been posed to Bynum “all day, every day.” He has been training rigorously in an attempt to get back after missing the last 29 games.
“I smile at everybody and tell them I want to get back sooner than you all want me back,” Bynum said in an exclusive interview with The Times. “Trust and believe me. All I do is play basketball and not to be able to do it, you just kind of feel out of place.
“I want to play before the playoffs. It’ll be close. I’m looking to make the last couple of games.”
