Bynum sits out again

Andrew Bynum sat out of practice for the second straight day, but told Lakers coach Phil Jackson he intends to play Sunday against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Bynum sprained his right ankle during the third quarter of the Lakers’ victory Thursday over the Chicago Bulls. He also did not practice Friday. “We hope he’s back,” Jackson said when asked about Bynum’s status for Sunday. “He was better today.” The 7-foot Bynum, who is averaging 19.4 points and 11.4 rebounds, sat out two games earlier this season because of a strained right elbow.
