Bynum has knee drained

Andrew Bynum had fluid drained from his injured right knee today. He doesn’t plan on practicing Tuesday with his teammates, but will give it a try Wednesday. “It was getting worse, the swelling wasn’t leaving, so we had to do it,” Bynum said. “I was doing the treatment, but it wasn’t getting any better. I think it’s supposed to be pretty much fine.” Bynum suffered a small tear of the meniscus in his right knee during the Lakers’ first-round playoff victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder, which has limited his mobility. He is averaging 9.1 points and 7.7 rebounds in 24 minutes during the playoffs, down from his regular-season totals of 15 points and 8.3 rebounds in 30 minutes.
