Andrew Bynum’s Knee Setback Reportedly Due To Bowling

by Ryne Nelson / @slaman10

Andrew Bynum will don a 76ers uniform at some point, but unfortunately, his debut won’t be any time soon.

Bynum admitted to ESPN that he recently suffered a “setback” and had “weakened cartilage” in both of his knees. The Sixers fear that the damage occurred when their center went bowling recently:

The Philadelphia 76ers fear All-Star center Andrew Bynum might have done additional damage to his knees while bowling, according to sources close to the situation.

Multiple sources told ESPN on Saturday that Bynum suffered an unspecified injury this month while bowling. On Friday, Bynum revealed that — on top of the issues with his right knee that could keep him sidelined until January — he also had suffered a “setback” with his left knee.

“I had a little bit of a setback, and we’re just working through some issues with the right knee,” Bynum said before the Sixers beat the Utah Jazz on Friday night. “I kind of have a mirror thing going on with my left knee. I don’t know what’s going on, but the doctors are saying pretty much that it’s a weakened cartilage state.”

Bynum isn’t at fault for bowling—the sport isn’t prohibited by NBA contracts—but predictions of his January return now seem optimistic.

    This trade is the equivalent of going to a car dealership, trading in your Benz for a BMW with a better interior, only to find out you’ve just been sold a lemon.

    I disagree….getting rid of Iggy has allowed Holiday to develop more and will allow Turner to as well. As far as I’m concerned if Bynum plays like he did last year that is just a plus, rather than the success of the trade being based upon it

    i don’t understand the comparison at all

  • lex

    Its call draft picks remember shaq penny Dwight

  • The Mauve Avenger

    They’re both goofballs. 7-feet tall, play Center in the NBA, both selected in the first round, African American, both played on Eastern and Western Conference teams, both have had 10+ blocks in a regular season game, both have idiotic stares on their faces at times.

    Everybody talks about how few great centers are coming into the NBA, and hell they just removed center on the all-star ballot. But: how many truly great centers would be playing right now if it wasn’t for injury? A healthy Howard, Bynum, Yao, Bogut and Oden would (arguably) give us as much talent at the 5 as the NBA has ever seen. We’ve all been damn unlucky.

  • Max

    LOLOLOL

    Don’t over exeggerate, but you have a point.

  • Dagger

    I’m assuming, of course, that Yao, Oden and even Bynum would have improved/improved more quickly without injuries.
