Andrew Bynum’s sprained left ankle was not considered serious enough to follow up with an MRI exam, and the Lakers are officially listing their center as day-to-day before Tuesday’s game against New Jersey.
Bynum was injured Sunday against Golden State after an awkward landing while trying to block the shot of Warriors power forward David Lee. X-rays were negative at the time.
Bynum went to the team’s training facility Monday and underwent a series of treatments with long-time trainer Gary Vitti, including electro-stimulation, ice and manual therapy, according to Lakers spokesman John Black.
He left Sunday’s game with 1:49 to go in the first quarter and limped while exiting the arena. He was not using crutches and declined the option to be driven to his car in a golf cart.
