Andrew Bynum Receiving More Injections in Both Knees and I’m Sure They are Absolutely Nothing to Worry About

"He’s like a groundhog: you see his shadow, you know spring is coming." 

That’s Evan Turner demonstrating a fundamental misunderstanding of Groundhog Day when he spoke to WIP today about Andrew Bynum perhaps nearing a return.

Meanwhile… the Sixers announced that Bynum is in New York, undergoing previously scheduled Synvisc-One (joint lubricator) injections in his knees. 

Chris Vito from the Delco Times has more:

A Sixers spokesman said the Synvisc injections were previously scheduled with Bynum's personal physician, Dr. David Altchek, and are not to be considered a setback. 

Bynum will take the rest of the week off and will resume his basketball-related activities next week, presumably as soon as Sunday.

Monday, Sixers GM Tony DiLeo said it was possible that Bynum could participate in practice with the Sixers by Friday. That, clearly, is out of the question.

 

CSN’s John Finger notes that players usually get these injections when they are getting ready to go, as the lubricator functions as a pain reliever. 

But.

But I’m skeptical.

In October, Bynum had the same injections, which were supposedly scheduled and routine and not really anything to worry about really you guys no big deal he'll be back before you know it hey have you seen our center he hasn't played at all and was spotted with Rach Recklesssss at a strip club

But they were something to worry about. 

And did you notice that last line from Vito? DiLeo said on Monday it was possible that Bynum would return to practice by Friday… but if the knee injections were previously scheduled, wouldn’t it have been known that he would be sidelined through the weekend? Philly.com’s Marc Narducci says that Bynum talked about receiving injections “around the all-star break” months ago, so maybe it was the plan all along. But, I really don’t believe anything Bynum or the Sixers say about Bynum anymore.

  1. I couldn’t care less if this loony toon doesn’t play a single game for the Sixers’.
    Anyone see the Nuggets lately? Iggy is doing work out there…I’m still happy to have gotten rid of his contract because he was vastly overpaid, and at least now they can try to really get a fresh start…but it’s tough to see that Denver team ripping it up. They’re very good.
    Less then 2 weeks till’ pitchers and catchers. Save us Doc.

    @FACE, I’d like to pitch and catch with you, if you know what i mean….

    meh it’s not that hard to watch considering they’ll be gone after the 1st round of the playoffs. The Nuggets are now to the West what the Sixers were to the East. Yes the Nuggets with Iggy are certainly better than the Sixers with Iggy, but the West is also a much better conference than the East. Memphis/Clips/Spurs/Thunder will put them down no problem.
    If Bynam is never playing a game it’s time to sell everyone for pennies on the dollar, except for Jrue and Thad.

  5. Kyle… you left your pajamas here last night. Andrew will drop them off on the way to the liquor store. By the way, we now have to disinfect the candlesticks so thanks for that.

  6. Remember when randy miller said all you do is copy beat writer material? He was really off base there huh Kyle

    I hope that smelly fucking ape blows his god damn knee caps out slipping on a banana peel or a puddle of grape soda or something.

  9. @Face yeah he’s doing really good. I might have a controversial opinion in saying that our most missed player is this year is Elton Brand. They need his leadership and his post presence. Let’s send Brick Young to dallas so we can get Brand back.

    I heard through my source (frank) at the penthouse club that Bynum will be in their suite for the Wingbowl tomorrow

    Bynum is inferior to Spencer Hawes. Any of his “skill” was gained in a deal with the devil.

  12. @Justin Diaz
    You act like there is a good story to write about the Sixers. Please elaborate on a good story…the winning streak they are on…the allstars we have on the court…Spencer HAwes…the 10 cent tickets. Please…anyone? Bueller?
    You’re an idiot

  13. i hope he doesnt play. this way, the sixers see absolutely no upside to him or any silver lining with his injury. its a given that he will undoubtedly come back, play 30 games, put up decent numbers, thus launching his own sweepstakes. that said, let some other team make the foolish decision to give this clown $100 mil.

  14. Kyle, you got to fix this damn word box…you can’t read a word in it. You aren’t that popular that you get spammed all the time. Get rid of it.

  15. Cut bynum a break Kyle, it ain’t easy reppin every black stereotype all at once. give a brother some love on accasion.
