08:16 AM ET 11.30 | Andrew Bynum believes he's still two to three weeks away from playing. He may be able to play Dec. 19 at Toronto, the last of the Lakers' six-game trip. ... As far as bringing in another player while Bynum and backup center Theo Ratliff (left knee surgery) recover, the Lakers must weigh the cost of signing another big man versus how much Jackson would actually use that player. It would cost the Lakers $56,000 to $60,000 per week in salary to sign a player, plus the team would have to pay the same amount in luxury taxes. "I'm not against it," Jackson said about adding another player. "It's not part of the plans right now."
