Andrew Bynum sprains ankle as Lakers beat Warriors

Those two games not withstanding, Bynum had another stellar month in March, averaging 22.2 points and 10.9 rebounds in 17 games as the Lakers went 11-6.

The injury does not appear to be serious and the team said X-rays taken during the game were negative. That’s good new for Los Angeles, which needs Bynum and Pau Gasol to continue providing a one-two punch on the interior and take the pressure off Kobe Bryant as the Lakers try to hold onto the third spot in the Western Conference playoff race.
