Bynum update

Andrew Bynum won’t play monster minutes against the Phoenix Suns in his return to the starting lineup from an elbow injury Thursday, at least not if Lakers coach Phil Jackson can avoid it. Jackson said after today’s practice, “He can play up to a point where he’s going to have discomfort. Right now, it’s not about running up and down and activity. Preferably, I’d like to keep him under 35 minutes a night. I don’t want to see him playing heavy minutes, especially in a game that’s going to be back and forth like tomorrow night. He tweaked it a few times today and went right through it.”
