As Homer Simpson would say, “Woo Hoo!”
CBS2: Here’s the latest on Bynum:
He ran in a swimming pool earlier this week, which is encouraging.
But what is really important is how much that knee swells now. That could determine if and when he can come back.
By the way, I keep hearing and reading these reports that Bynum is “behind schedule” in his recovery and “could miss the rest of this year.” Anybody saying that is just making it up.
The truth is that it’s too early to tell what his timeline is.
I’ve talked to two different doctors about Bynum and they both agree about one thing: the original projection of “at least eight weeks” is still accurate.
They told me that with an injury like this, the most important thing to do is rest it for at least a month, which Bynum has done.
Now, over the next month, he’ll test the knee to see how it holds up.
