L.A. Times: Bynum’s recovery is on track

Great update on Bynum. Isn’t it crazy to think we’ll have him back with Pau and Kobe playing at such a high level. This is going to be a dominant inside force the league will have to reckon with. “Center was projected to return from knee injuries in mid-March, after eight weeks, and his progress has given Lakers no reason to alter timetable.”

L.A. Times: Meanwhile, back at home . . .

Andrew Bynum continues to heal, which the Lakers will accept as an added pick-me-up while working their way through a 15-day trip.

Bynum was expected to be out at least eight weeks after sustaining a bone bruise in his left knee and a dislocation of his left kneecap Jan. 13 against Memphis. He would return the week of March 9 if he came back eight weeks from the time of the injury.

“That was kind of the thought when the injury happened,” Lakers spokesman John Black said Friday. “We have no reason to change that right now. We will continue to monitor it.

“As far as the swelling goes, it looks more normal. He’s definitely not running or jogging, but he’s continuing treatment.”

Bynum was averaging 13.1 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.1 blocked shots a game when he got hurt.

    great news. I would say give him another week or two and dont rush him and make sure he is really 100%. as long as he is back by last week of march that gives hima nd the team 3-4 weeks before the playoffs and we can make the push to the top.
