Laker center Andrew Bynum sat out the majority of practice because of knee discomfort, the L.A. Times are reporting.
The move was more precautionary than anything, but it is the same right knee that sidelined him for 32 games because of a torn medial collateral ligament.
Lakers Coach Phil Jackson indicated the soreness might be related to the bulky brace Bynum had worn since returning six games ago.
"I don't think it's anything that the training staff thought was structural," Jackson said. "Some of it's due to [the] brace, wearing the brace and the inhibiting of the brace of the motions. I think it's all capable of working out, but he did not work much on the court [Wednesday] at all."
A team spokesman told the Times that Bynum would play in game 3 on Thursday.

If need be, let him sit a game. I don't think it would crush us.

I hope that's the case. And the pain is outside his knee, not on the inside...
I'm sure the brace he is wearing is quite uncomfortable when you have it on for a certain amount of time.

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."
