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.
