Andrew Bynum will start Sunday in Game 1, Lakers coach Phil Jackson said today after practice. Kobe Bryant also will start against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Bynum’s strained left Achilles tendon is sufficiently healed. Bryant’s injured ankle, finger and knee remain a concern, but he’s good enough to play. Sasha Vujacic is out because of a sprained left ankle. DJ Mbenga got cracked upside the head for the second straight day and went to see a doctor. Stay tuned.
