Bynum’s knee trouble explained

Coach Phil Jackson clarified Andrew Bynum’s knee condition before the Lakers played host to the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight. Bynum said Thursday he continues to have swelling in his surgically-repaired right knee and also takes medication. Said Jackson:

“Yes, we watch it. He has swelling that develops. But we try to stay in touch with it. He’s not out there getting numbers by playing extra minutes at the end of a game. The other night he came out with three minutes to go. It wasn’t a done deal, but it was time for him to come off the floor. It’s not the same thing. It’s not quite that same level of irritation.”
