The MRI results are in, and they appear to be good news. Per Mike Bresnahan of the Times and other sources who follow the team, Andrew Bynum has been diagnosed with a bone bruise, but is expected to be ready when the playoffs start this weekend. The injury has been deemed "not serious."

More good news: per Kevin Ding, an MRI on Matt Barnes's knee showed no new damage, and he too should be ready for the playoffs.

Phew!
