Lakers' Bynum leaves with leg injury
Lakers center Andrew Bynum has left the court during the second quarter of Los Angeles' game against San Antonio after an awkward fall.
Bynum was hurt midway through the second quarter Tuesday night when he stepped on the foot of Spurs big man DeJuan Blair while getting back on defense. Bynum tumbled to the court and briefly stayed down before walking under his own power to the locker room.
Bynum missed the first 28 games of the regular season following surgery on his troublesome right knee.
Bynum is averaging 11.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and nearly 2 blocked shots in 54 games this season.
