Andrew Bynum hurting as Finals begin

Andrew Bynum was limping, with his injured right knee heavily bandaged, after the Lakers’ practice Wednesday, raising new doubts that the procedure to drain fluid from the swollen joint would make a difference.

“Whether it was successful in keeping his knee not swollen over this period of time, you know, that may not happen,” Jackson said.

Bynum had limited participation in Wednesday’s practice, but said he can “do anything when it comes to a game. There’s nothing I physically can’t do; it’s just the pain level and the muscle shutting down. But come game time, all that goes out the window.

“In practice, it’s more just preventing a major injury.”
