Bynum Injures Right Knee Vs. Memphis

Lakers center Andrew Bynum, who began Saturday night’s game in Memphis dominating as he’d done in L.A.’s last five games, went down with an apparent knee injury as Kobe Bryant was pushed into L.A.’s center in the lane with 6:55 to go in the first quarter.

Original reports from the Lakers are that Bynum suffered a sprained right knee; x-rays were negative, but Bynum will undergo further testing in New York on Sunday morning.

Last season, Bynum injured the knee cap of his left knee against Memphis on Jan. 13, an injury obviously unrelated to the one he suffered tonight.
