6-2 Injury Update: Andrew Bynum

Perhaps the only actual news out of Wednesday’s NBA Finals media session at STAPLES Center was with regard to Andrew Bynum’s right knee.

Two days after getting his knee aspirated, removing much of the swelling, Bynum said that some of the swelling had returned.

This, however, is not unexpected, according to Lakers’ spokesman John Black. Bynum still is likely better off than he was before getting the knee drained, and was able to make it through Wednesday’s practice “fine” according to Phil Jackson.

Bynum concurred, saying that he’s excited to start Thursday evening’s Game 1.
