Bryant, Bynum updates

Neither guard Kobe Bryant nor center Andrew Bynum practiced with teammates this afternoon, the Lakers’ final workout before playing Game 1 of the Western Conference finals against the Phoenix Suns on Monday at Staples Center. Nobody expects Bryant and Bynum to be anywhere but in the starting lineup when the ball is tossed into the air, however. Bryant and Bynum have been nursing sore knees. The rest of the Lakers are in fine form, according to Coach Phil Jackson. That’s probably not exactly true, but all 13 players on the roster are fit enough to play in Game 1. Twelve will be on the active roster.
