Andrew Bynum ready for Game 5

Lakers starting center Andrew Bynum on Saturday pronounced himself “100 percent” for tonight’s NBA Finals Game 5 at TD Garden.

After playing only two minutes in the second half of Game 4, and just 12 minutes total, Bynum had an MRI on Friday on his sore right knee to be certain no additional physical damage had occurred, and then had fluid drained for the second time in the past two weeks.

Bynum is playing through the pain of a torn right meniscus cartilage and first had the knee drained June 1, two days before Game 1.
