Default Bynum Could Be Back Sooner Rather Than Later

Quote:
He needed help off, but he could walk back on sooner than many think.

Nobody wants to say it out loud, for fear of a jinx, but there are whispers around the Lakers that Andrew Bynum will be back by the end of March or early April. Sooner than most thought and in plenty of time for the playoffs.

Tuesday he showed up to a Lakers practice and was quick to show off how fast he is recovering.

"He said the swelling is minimum right now that he has," Jackson said. "He's walking without aid. So he feels pretty good about what he's doing. We know that this first two weeks is going to be kind of sketchy. As he starts healing, things will start changing a little bit."

After last season, when Bynumís recovery dragged on worse than a Grayís Anatomy story line, everybody around the Lakers is gun-shy about saying anything positive this time around.

But the whispers are there ó he looks good. Heíll start rehab soon. And with a little luck he will be back with plenty of time to get in shape before the playoffs.

Bynum was expected to return in March last year but he actually missed the entire playoff series...

Once he's on the court, i wonder who's going to be the next guy to fall on his knees.

Great to hear but I won't celebrate until he's back on the court. I'm just happy he's doing well right now because it must be devastating to have two serious injuries in two years.

I hope most of the injured players get back soon. It'll make the playoffs more interesting.

There's a difference because last year we never got any real news until they told us that he'd be having surgery. But yeah, don't wanna jinx it.

I guess that's good, though my fantasy teams are sad.

I don't want to jinx anything, last year everyone was saying the same thing all the way up till he got his surgery, I don't want to get hopes up but I'm pretty sure we can win the title with the team we have aslong as Ariza, Kobe, Odom and Pau stay healthy, didn't we own the Cavs the second time without Bynum? We don't need him to win, but it would help a crap load.
