Could it have been worse? Maybe. But still, 8 weeks is a mighty long time for our difference maker. No surgery is needed.
ESPN: Andrew Bynum, a key factor in the Los Angeles Lakers’ 25-11 start to the season, will miss eight weeks with what his agent says is a subluxation of his left kneecap.
David Lee told ESPN The Magazine’s Sam Alipour that Bynum will not need surgery. Bynum, who had an MRI on Monday, will begin rehabiliation immediately, Lee said.
“He’s already focusing on his rehab,” Lee said Monday.
Bynum injured his knee early in the third quarter of Sunday night’s 100-99 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. A subluxation occurs when the kneecap is pulled toward the outside of the knee.
