Update #3: Andrew Bynum had an MRI on his right knee on Sunday but the Lakers don’t expect to know the results until Monday evening. However, there were some Memphis doctor’s that believe it’s nothing too “serious.”
O.C.Register: Pau Gasol, who obviously knows people here with his former team, said he spoke with the Memphis Grizzlies’ team doctors who examined Bynum, and they believed Bynum might have averted major damage and “it’s probably nothing too serious.”
“They seem pretty optimistic,” Gasol told me … with his fingers crossed.
After the game, Bynum said that the injury feels better than last year, “I can walk, I don’t need the crutch, it’s just there to keep pressure off of it.” And how does he feel? “I’m definitely feeling optimistic. I can’t wait to return. Supposedly, it isn’t bad as last year, and I shouldn’t miss that much time.” Good news, we say. Get well, Bynumite.
Here is a video of the incident…
Update #1: He is not putting ANY pressure on the knee and the X-Rays were negative (as expected).
Andrew Bynum has been diagnosed with a SPRAINED RIGHT KNEE. Despite the X-Ray results, Andrew will undergo an MRI tomorrow morning in New York for the final results of the injury. Our thoughts and prayers are with Andrew.
