MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum left the game against the Memphis Grizzlies in the first quarter Saturday night with an apparent right knee injury.
The extent of Bynum's injury was not immediately known.
The injury occurred at about the 7-minute mark of the first quarter under the Lakers' basket. Kobe Bryant was drove to the basket, missed the shot and crashed into Bynum's right leg. Bynum immediately grabbed his knee.
The two were on the ground under their basket as the Grizzlies went to the other end. After Los Angeles gained possession, they called time out. Bynum was helped to the locker room with Los Angeles leading 13-11.
Bynum missed the final 46 games of last season with a left knee injury he suffered against Memphis on Jan. 13, 2008.
