Bynum Pushing Through Sore Left Knee

Late in L.A.’s win over Charlotte on Wednesday, Andrew Bynum collided knees with the Bobcats’ Stephen Jackson, which he said affected his movement in that game and Friday night’s loss to Denver.

“It’s bothering me, but I’m going to play through it and get some rest over the All-Star break,” said Bynum. “But it’s not anything too bad.”

So, while Bynum doesn’t have full range of motion in his knee, it’s not something he’s confident won’t be a lasting issue.

To help appease the problem, Bynum is wearing a Styrofoam pad under a knee sleeve on his left knee, and he continues to wear a larger brace on his right knee. That right knee is the one that Bynum spent much of the offseason strengthening after tearing his right MCL last Jan. 31st in Memphis.
