Lakers center Andrew Bynum limited by knee injury

He plays only 12 minutes in Game 4 loss to the Celtics, but is optimistic about appearing Sunday.—Chicago—June 11, 2010

Reporting from Boston -- Andrew Bynum will be tired of a lot of things by the time the next couple of days come to a close.

To name a few: ice, electro-stim machines and questions about his swollen right knee.

The Lakers center played only 12 minutes in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, collecting two points and three rebounds in the Lakers' 96-89 loss to the Boston Celtics.

He didn't look strong Thursday, but said he was optimistic about playing Sunday in Game 5.

"I've got two days to get some treatment, pump a little bit of the swelling out," he said.

Knee specialist David Altchek, sports medicine orthopedic surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery and Bynum's personal doctor, might come down from New York to take a look at the knee this weekend.
