LOS ANGELES — Andrew Bynum’s days of gushing about how great his knee feels appear to be over.

Bynum said after the Lakers’ Game 2 victory that he has some pain on the outside of his right knee. He said it was an irritation in his iliotibial band but isn’t a major concern. He said it’s “going to be there for a little while.”

Bynum described his current health as “pretty good” six games into a return from a torn medial collateral ligament in his right knee. Assessing both the state of his body and his game, he said he is “feeling overall about 95 percent.”

He's going to be fine. :)

Hope you feel 100% soon Drew.

I always thought Kevin Ding praised the Lakers a lot.

It's obvious he was going to have some kind of pain, not playing for so many games and then coming back to a high level takes it's toll. Let's just hope his knee progresses well.

Yeah...wish him well, but I believe it's just those nagging discomfort that happens...like Kobe's right knee...

Drew needs to limit his efforts until the WCF. We don't need him playing in a high level yet.

He'll be fine, but I think he has to pace himself during games so he doesn't put too much stress on that knee.

The pain he's experiencing is the "play through it pain" and not the "he needs to shut it down" pain.

Kinda like the pain Kobe was experiencing earlier in the year when he hurt his ring finger. He could still play through it.

James Worthy mentioned something similiar to this. M.T. did also. They said that some of these younger players'll need to learn how to play through the pain. I hope Drew's OK but I'd hate to see Phil shut him down or limit his minutes.

when asked AB says it was a result of the harness on it and not his actual knee
Kobe's official reign of terror is about to get its jump off on.

EL SEGUNDO — Phil Jackson was asked after practice about Andrew Bynum’s acknowledgement that he’s having pain on the outside of his right knee, which Bynum said was in his iliotibial band.

Jackson was aware of the problem but said: “I don’t think that it’s anything that is structural.” Jackson suggested that the brace that Bynum is wearing might cause his knee to move in such a manner that exacerbates this sort of thing.

“We’re keeping an eye on it,” Jackson said.

Bynum has played the final four regular-season games and now two postseason games since tearing the medial collateral ligament in his right knee. Jackson said Bynum’s dramatic fade after a torrid start to Game 2 was partly because of Utah’s double-teaming and Bynum’s fatigue.

I'm sure he'll be fine. He had been excited to enter the playoffs for the first time so he'll probably might as well keep working at it.
