Sources: Andrew Bynum Fined by Lakers
Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum might not have attempted any more 3-pointers after being benched last week, but his team’s disciplinary actions against him didn’t end there.
Bynum recently was fined an undisclosed amount for “numerous infractions,” multiple sources confirmed to ESPNLosAngeles.com. One of the stunts that warranted the fine from the team was Bynum blowing off a meeting with Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak.
Bynum told ESPNLosAngeles.com he was unaware of the fine before getting into his car outside the Lakers’ practice facility and driving away after the team’s shootaround in preparation for its game against the New Jersey Nets on Tuesday.
Bynum did tell the website, though, he would not play in Tuesday night’s game after suffering a moderate sprain of his left ankle in the first quarter of a game against the Golden State Warriors on Sunday.
