Lakers' Andrew Bynum making strides

Bynum

SAN ANTONIO -- Lakers center Andrew Bynum, out since Jan. 31 with a torn medial collateral ligament in his right knee, has taken some more steps toward a hopeful return to action.

The Lakers sent out a note today stating that Bynum began running on the treadmill Tuesday and that there were no negative repercussions so far.

The Lakers originally said Bynum would be out eight to 12 weeks when he was first injured, which would have put his return at March 30 at the earliest.

But Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said this week that he didn't want to talk about Bynum's returning until sometime in April.
