No practice today, but there was some news on Andrew Bynum and Phil Jackson.
First, Bynum underwent an MRI exam on his injured left Achilles tendon Monday, and the results were unchanged. He continues to suffer from a strain and there is no timetable for his return to the active roster, a team spokesman said in an email. He will continue to receive therapy from the team’s athletic training staff.
Second, Jackson received a $35,000 fine from the NBA for criticizing the referees after Sunday’s loss to the San Antonio Spurs. Jackson was displeased with the manner in which calls went against Ron Artest, who was locked in a physical battle with Manu Ginobili.
