Lakers build early lead, hold on for home win over Wizards

LOS ANGELES (NBA.com exclusive) -- The news wasn't all bad Sunday night. It certainly could have been worse.

As the Los Angeles Lakers were trying not to blow a hefty second-half lead against the hapless Washington Wizards, many at Staples Center were likely as concerned with the absence of oft-injured Lakers center Andrew Bynum.

The Lakers held on for a 99-92 victory, now they must move on for an indefinite period without Bynum.

Bynum, who is averaging 15 points and 8.3 rebounds, injured his Achilles tendon Friday night in the third quarter of a victory against Minnesota. He saw a foot specialist Saturday and the news was comforting. An MRI confirmed there was no tear in the tendon, but rather a strain. He will be re-evaluated in a week, the team announced.

"We really have nothing definitive about it," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said before the game. "We really don't know how this therapy is going to come out. The best thing I heard today is that he felt better from Day One to Day Two."

Forging ahead without Bynum has become routine for the Lakers (52-18). He missed 46 games in 2007-08 with a dislocated knee cap, and sat out 32 games last season with a torn ligament in his right knee.

He missed the playoffs in 2008, but returned in time for the 2009 championship run, only to struggle with foul trouble. He averaged just 19 minutes during the NBA Finals against Orlando.

"Fortunately, this year we got two more months of playing time out of Drew," Jackson said. "Hopefully, this [injury] is a short duration."

Jackson conceded that even if Bynum returns in two weeks, as some have predicted, it might take another two weeks to get him back into game shape. That puts him up against the start of the playoffs.

"An Achilles or a leg injury is something you can't really stay in great shape with," Jackson said. "Taking off and landing, all your power moves, are something you're going to have to adjust."

With Bynum out against the Wizards (21-47), Lamar Odom moved back into the starting lineup and Pau Gasol moved from forward to center.

Right from the start, Odom proved he was ready to pick up some of the rebounding slack, grabbing seven of his team-high 13 in the first 15 minutes. Bryant stole the show in the second quarter, scoring 20 of his 24 points as the Lakers built a 59-33 halftime lead.

Bryant made his first shot of the third quarter to give the Lakers their biggest lead of 28 points, but then he and the Lakers put it in neutral and coasted to the end.

Bryant didn't take another shot, leaving him one shy of surpassing Alex English for No. 12 on the all-time NBA scoring list (25,613).

Gasol led the Lakers with 28 points and 12 rebounds. Ron Artest scored 11 of his 16 points in the third quarter and Shannon Brown contributed 13 off the bench.

Despite a lead that had shrunk to 12 points, Jackson kept Bryant on the bench the final 4:01 and went with reserves Sasha Vujacic, Jordan Farmar and Brown, along with starters Gasol and Odom.

Nick Young, who went to school at nearby Cleveland High in Reseda and USC, keyed the Washington comeback by scoring 13 of his team-high 22 points in the fourth quarter. Two other players with Los Angeles ties were in the starting lineup, former first-round draft picks of the Los Angeles Clippers, Shaun Livingston and Al Thornton.

Thornton, who was traded to Washington last month, scored 18 points. Livingston, who was signed through the rest of the season Friday after playing through two 10-day contracts, had eight points and six assists in 29 minutes.
