Andrew Bynum May Not Play This Season, Has More Knee Swelling

With the Philadelphia Sixers’ season swirling down the drain, the news only keeps getting worse. According to Andrew Bynum, he experienced more knee swelling last week, and says he may not play at all this season. [Insert sad trombone here.] Bynum also addressed his impending free agency. Per the Delco Times: “Andrew Bynum said he’s experiencing some swelling in his right knee after last week’s 5-on-5 scrimmage, calling it a ‘four- to five-day setback’ and adding that he doesn’t feel the need to play to get his next contract. Speaking at PCOM following the 76ers’ practice Friday, Bynum said his right knee is his concern. For those keeping score at home, that’s the one that had been better and, for the last few months, the left knee (the one he hurt in November while bowling) was the one setting him back. Bynum said he’s not sure if he’ll ever play for the Sixers this season. ‘Now it’s getting really late,’ he said. ‘I don’t know.’ [...] ‘Being healthy is more important than everything else,’ Bynum said. ‘If I am healthy, I’ll get a deal. I have to be able to play and I need to get to the point where I’m healthy to play.’”

    Andrew Bynum is a basketball player? I thought he was a hairstylist or something.

    But thanks for the money though!!!

  • robb

    I’d like to know what’s the problem exactly. Why are his knees swelling so much? What’s the medical reason?

    He picked up one too many playboy bunnies on his shoulders.

    Kupchak is a genius. Right calls all around on letting LO, Bynum, and Fish go.

    while other’s (hello) said they’d be lucky if he was even healthy.

  • bike

    Enough already…just shut him down for the season. Face the fact he will never be a full-season player.

  • roscoe

    But.. but… but… do we get to see another new hair style?

  • i_ball

    I don’t like to be one to say that. But sometimes, you gotta. Sh*t I waited 5 months to say anything about it.

    lol. i feel u

    Was that me? When healthy I believed that at the time I’m sure. I really underrated Gasol defensively.

    A certain person argued he was better than Marc Gasol

  • danpowers

    and i kept that guy until yesterday on my fantasy team -.-

  • Drig

    I did say he’d be better than Dwight offensively but Dwight would be the best C defensively by far……….

    Looks like I was wrong on both counts for this season lol.

  • danpowers

    yes, when we didnt know that his knee issues were THAT bad. he clearly has the talent to be better and when he was healthy he showed his potential and skillset.

    and yes, now thats it. with that kind of knee issues it should be clear that he wont play on all star level anymore. id laugh my a*s off tho, if any team gave him something close to a max contract this upcoming season. i hope the knicks will give it a shot on a 10 day contract lol

  • Max

    Surprise motherf*cker!

  • theDankerNuggets

    I doubt it after this season

    You and Lakeshow. I said the opposite. I also said David West was a good signing. Yes, I only mention my comments when they are right.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Yeah yeah I’ll never hear the end of this David West nonsense. They are gonna end up resigning him. And it may end up happening again.
