Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum will start off his All-Star weekend getting an injection of Synvisc, which serves as a lubricant, into his right knee, according to ESPN Los Angeles.

Two summers ago, Bynum had surgery to help fix up torn cartilage and the 24-year-old wears a brace on the knee during games these days, the site notes.

Bynum will sit out practice Saturday for the All-Star game while recuperating and then start the game on Sunday, according to ESPN.

Bynum has played in 30 of the Lakers' 34 games this season, averaging 16.3 points and 12.8 rebounds per game, both career highs.
