Lakers Pregame: Bynum Feeling Better

While addressing the media before L.A.’s Wednesday night tilt against San Antonio, Phil Jackson was asked whether or not Andrew Bynum could play on the team’s current 5-game road trip.

“It’s interesting … I haven’t ruled it out, but I haven’t even thought about it in those terms,” said L.A.’s coach. “(Bynum) did say he’s feeling a lot better today. I can’t see that happening right now, but that’s a hopeful note.”

Jackson added that Bynum has worn his walking boot at times and taken it off at others, such as in the pregame locker room when he sat barefoot reading a book.

The Lakers play Oklahoma City on Friday, Houston on Saturday, New Orleans on Monday and Atlanta on Wednesday.
