Lakers Andrew Bynum injured

Andrew Bynum, a big factor in the Los Angeles Lakers‘ strong start, will be out at least eight weeks because of an injured left knee.MRI tests and an examination Monday by team physician Dr. Steve Lombardo revealed Bynum had temporarily dislocated his kneecap and suffered a bone bruise.

The 20-year-old center, who leads the NBA in field-goal percentage, was injured early in the third quarter of Sunday night’s 100-99 victory over Memphis when he landed on teammate Lamar Odom’s left foot while going for a rebound.

Bynum crumpled to the court, and teammates Kwame Brown and Ronny Turiaf had to carry him to the locker room as fans at Staples Center chanted, “By-num, By-num.”

Bynum is expected to make a full recovery, the Lakers said in a press release. He is expected to be out for 8 weeks.

Just one week ago, the Lakers were looking like a team that could potentially make a run for the championship. Without Bynum for the next couple of months, I'm not sure if that'll happen. He's going to have time to come back and get some games in before the playoffs, but there's no telling how he will rebound from a somewhat serious injury.
