Bynum Done.... Or Is He?

Los Angeles Lakers' center Andrew Bynum fell to the ground holding his knee just the way he did last year around this time. As Kobe Bryant drove in the lane, Bynum went to the net, but going for the rebound, Kobe landed on his leg, eventually send Bynum to the ground.

The diagnosis Monday was a relief to Bynum, who initially feared he might be out for the season.
"It's better news than I expected to hear because of the shot that I took," Bynum said before the Lakers played at the Knicks on Monday night.

Bynum hopes his comeback occurs closer to the eight-week mark, which would give him about 10 games to prepare for the postseason. Twelve weeks would mean the playoffs had already started.

Bynum is the Lakers' third-leading scorer and second-leading rebounder, averaging 14.0 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks.
The 7-foot, 285-pound Bynum's injury brought back bad memories of last season for the Lakers.

If Bynum doesn't come back and produce, say goodbye to the Lakers' chance of winning a championship. They needed a dominant center in the finals last year to take care of business down low, but that did not happen.
