MILWAUKEE — Lakers coach Phil Jackson gave this update on 7-foot center Andrew Bynum before tonight’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks: “We anticipate he’ll be playing multi-player games or practice tomorrow. You know, two-on-two or something like that, so there’s some traffic but he’s not ready for 5-on-5, and to be honest with you we won’t have that type of practice tomorrow. I’ll probably ask a couple of guys come in tomorrow.”
Bynum has been playing 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 games back in Southern California while the team has been touring North America, Belgium and the sub continent for the last two weeks. He has been sidelined by a torn MCL in his right knee since Jan. 31.
