Andrew Bynum said he would play tonight against Dallas despite having a bone spur break free in his right ankle. Bynum was injured when he stepped on the foot of New Jersey’s Vince Carter in the second quarter of the Lakers’ victory over the Nets on Tuesday.
Bynum worked out before the game and said:
“It felt OK. It doesn’t feel fine, but it feels OK. I’m going to give it a shot in the game and see if that doesn’t make it any worse. It happened in the second quarter Tuesday, under the six minute mark, I remember that. It’s a little bit swollen, but it’s bearable. It’s just aggravation. They can’t really do anything to it, just put ice on it. Doc said if it doesn’t get any more painful then it should be resolved in about two weeks. There’s no risk (of further injury).”
