Center Andrew Bynum is at least three weeks from returning from a left knee injury and forward Trevor Ariza is still about eight weeks from returning from a broken bone in his right foot. Ariza's original timetable called for a return to health four weeks from now, but his foot was "healing more slowly than we hoped," a team official said Monday.
At least its not Bynum. Ariza is important but Bynum is going to be needed more thanhim. But still, we need him, he will most likly defend the opposing teams best player
I agree, I think we will need to get Bynums conditioning and rythm back with the new look lakers. Ariza is more of a spontaneous scorer on passes that lead to dunks and layups. I love his defense and think that will be a very valuable weapon come playoff time. He will be able to guard the bigger wings Sasha is too small for.
