Get your, “get well soon” cards ready. Here is an injury report from the L.A. Times on our beloved Lakers:
Bynum is still jogging in a swimming pool and also working out on an elliptical machine, but he has not tested his injured left knee on a treadmill, though that could come next week, a team source said.
Ariza hoped to get out of a walking boot earlier this week, but the broken bone in his right foot hadn’t healed enough, a reality that Coach Phil Jackson called “a disappointment for us.”
Backup center Mihm has begun jogging on the court less than three weeks after having a screw removed from his surgically repaired right heel. He hoped to be back in time to play in April, which would be about right for the original six-week timetable.
“There was a tension and a painful pressure in the back of my heel, but it hasn’t been there since that screw was removed,” Mihm said. “I’m doing stuff already that was driving me up a wall four or six weeks ago.”
