Bynum update

DENVER — OK, there’s really not much new to report. It remains likely that Andrew Bynum will not play again until the playoffs start because of a strained left Achilles tendon. He said tonight he’s OK with a playoff return and doesn’t feel compelled to come back for one of the Lakers’ final four regular-season games, including Friday at Minnesota. Here’s more:

“It’s coming along very slowly, but I’m getting better every day,” he said. “I think all the treatment I’m doing is paying off and I’ll be all right soon. I’m not sure it’s possible (to return to the roster before the end of the regular season next Wednesday). First, I was kind of excited about doing it, but then I was, like, ‘What’s the point?’

“I’m going to play the first game of the playoffs (April 18).”
