Report: Bynum says he'll play Tuesday
The way they've played lately, the Los Angeles Lakers could use some help. They may get some Tuesday.
Andrew Bynum said after Monday's practice that he will make his season debut against the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night, according to the Los Angeles Times.
"I’m definitely playing tomorrow," said the Lakers’ center, who has not seen game action since undergoing knee surgery last July.
The Lakers have gone 9-7 since winning their first eight games. Pau Gasol, a natural power forward, has worn down playing the center position in Bynum's absence.
Lakers coach Phil Jackson said Bynum might play only about 15 minutes, according to the Times.
Bynum, 23, averaged 15 points and 8.3 rebounds last season. He underwent knee surgery July 28 to repair torn cartilage in his right knee.
